General Application Practice Directive #7: Adjournment of Chamber Proceedings comes into effect February 1, 2016. The new Practice Directive sets out how and when to notify the Local Registrar of requests to adjourn chamber matters.
Compliance with the Practice Directive, particularly providing the Local Registrar with prompt notice of adjournments, allows the Court to efficiently allocate its resources to reduce unreasonable wait times in chambers.
