APPEALS IN CRIMINAL CASES

The following procedure applies to appeals in criminal cases.

pro forma roll of criminal appeal cases is called on a date to be obtained from the Registrar. Once the notice of appeal has been filed in the record, the attorneys for the case or, if applicable, the parties representing themselves, receive a notice asking them to attend for case management purposes.

Members of the Bar practising outside the Gatineau region may attend the pro forma calling of the roll via a telephone conference call linking them to the courtroom.

When the roll is called, the judge:

  • requests information on the nature and scope of the legal and factual questions that will be debated during the hearing;
  • discusses with the attorneys or parties the need for a full or partial transcript of the hearing in first instance;
  • establishes a timetable for discussions between the parties and the placing in the court record of a brief containing:

    a) a summary of the facts agreed on by the parties; if the parties are unable to agree, the judge may order each party to file its own brief;
    b) a summary of the respective claims of each parties, including relevant references to the transcript of the transcript of the hearing in first instance, if required;
    c) the applicable legal texts and regulations, if any, and the case law and doctrine that the parties intend to invoke in support of their respective claims; the relevant paragraphs must be underlined;

  • verifies the state of the file.

In all cases, the judge may specify any other measure needed to ensure that the file is ready.

At the calling of the pro forma roll, the attorneys are informed of the date set to hear the case. It is important for the attorneys in charge of the file to be present at the calling of the roll with their schedules.

As soon as an application for authorization to institute a class action has been filed at the clerk’s office, the  coordinating judge for class actions must be notified of the application.

For the general directives of the Class Actions Chamber, see Title IV (Directives propres aux affaires de la chambre des actions collectives) of the Directives de la Cour supérieure pour le District de Montréal (English version coming soon).

Register of class actions

 

Once an Attestation that a File is Complete has been issued, the cases are placed on a provisional roll.

The provisional roll is called once a month before the coordinating judge in courtroom 11 or any other courtroom. The dates on which the provisional roll is called are available at the clerk’s office. Attorneys and persons representing themselves receive a notice stating the date and time at which their case will be called. They must attend the calling of the provisional roll.

Attorneys from outside the region may be heard by way of a conference call providing they file a request with the master of the rolls at least one week before the date set for calling the provisional roll.

Dates of the interim appeals (January to June 2021): February 17, 2021, March 17, 2021, April 21, 2021, June 16, 2021                                                                                    Room and time: The interim appeal is held virtually in virtual room # 11 at 9:00 a.m.

Any urgent request can be addressed to the judge in chambers. It should be noted that the judge in chambers also sits in chambers and is therefore not available at all times. For the schedule of the chambers judge, you are invited to contact the office of the coordinating judge.

1) Application for postponement made on the day of the hearing

Every application for postponement made on the day of the hearing is decided by the coordinating judge or the judge responsible for the roll.

2) Contested or non-contested application for postponement made prior to the day of the hearing

For cases proceeding on their merits, subject to the following, every application for postponement, other than an application referred to in paragraph 1, must be made by letter or by motion and is decided by the coordinating judge or by the judge responsible for the roll of cases proceeding on their merits.

3) Application for postponement in the Family Practice Division

Every application for postponement must be submitted by letter or by motion to the coordinating judge.

Every Motion under article 48 C.C.P. is presented to the chief justice or the judge designated for that purpose by the chief justice. To present a Motion, the office of the chief justice (tél. : 514 393-2144) must be contacted and, depending on the circumstances, a date will be determined along with the way in which the Motion will be presented and heard.

 

Any request for specific case management or for the setting of a file by preference should be forwarded to the Coordinating Judge. 

Every application for a pre-trial conference for a case ready to be heard may be submitted to the coordinating judge.

 

Several audiences are held in virtual or semi-virtual mode in virtual rooms created through Microsoft's "Teams" platform. All Civil, Family and Bankruptcy and Insolvency Practice Court sessions are held in virtual mode.

The interim appeal is held in virtual mode.

Hearings on the merits are held in virtual or semi-virtual mode and it is the coordinating judge or the judge responsible for the term who determines the appropriate hearing mode for each proceeding.
