CONTINUED SUSPENSION OF REGULAR OPERATIONS

This Notice updates and continues the Notice issued March 17, 2020, suspending regular operations of the Nunavut Court of Justice (NCJ) on account of COVID-19. The Chief Justice has directed that the suspension of regular NCJ operations continue through to Friday, July 3, 2020. This…

The Nunavut Court of Justice (“NCJ”) has suspended Practice Directive #35’s requirement that sureties sign Surety Cautions in Form 35A. This temporary suspension has resulted from a recognition that requiring sureties to attend at a law office or RCMP detachment to sign legal documents is inconsistent with public health efforts to promote social distancing during the COVID-19 crisis.

Throughout the suspension period, sureties will be required to orally attest, over the phone during a bail hearing, to the legal responsibility being undertaken by the surety. In exceptional situations when a surety is unable to appear via telephone to make such an attestation, the Court may accept an undertaking from defence counsel that the surety has agreed to the responsibility of being the accused’s surety.

Directive pratique n ° 35 suspendue

La Cour de justice du Nunavut («NCJ») a suspendu l'exigence de la Directive de pratique n o 35 voulant que les cautions signent des mises en garde au titre du formulaire 35A. Cette suspension temporaire résulte de la reconnaissance du fait qu'obliger les cautions à se présenter dans un cabinet d'avocats ou un détachement de la GRC pour signer des documents juridiques est incompatible avec les efforts de santé publique visant à promouvoir la distanciation sociale pendant la crise COVID-19.

Tout au long de la période de suspension, les cautions seront tenues d'attester oralement, par téléphone lors d'une audience de mise en liberté sous caution, de la responsabilité légale assumée par la caution. Dans des situations exceptionnelles où une caution ne peut se présenter par téléphone pour faire une telle attestation, la Cour peut accepter l’engagement de l’avocat de la défense que la caution a accepté la responsabilité d’être la caution de l’accusé.
