January 2023 - Electronic Filing Portal

The Supreme Court of Canada has developed an e-filing portal that will make it easier to file documents. The portal will be available on January 30, 2023 through a link on the Supreme Court of Canada website. 

The e-filing portal will be the primary method for filing the electronic version of a document, including documents that are required to be bound, notwithstanding Rule 19(1)(c).   The other provisions of Rule 19 continue to apply, including the requirement to file a print version of a document within five business days of the filing of the electronic version.

The portal cannot be used for the filing of sealed and confidential documents referred to in Rule 19.1.

If the portal cannot be used or if the person filing is unable to produce an electronic version of a document, instructions are available through the portal.

The Guidelines for Preparing Documents to be filed with the Supreme Court of Canada (Print and Electronic) have been updated.

The Notice to the Profession of August 2020 is no longer in effect.

For further information, please contact the Registry at 613-996-8666 or toll free at 1-844-365-9662, or by email at registry-greffe@scc-csc.ca.
