Approved and prescribed forms

   

Various forms have been prescribed under the Supreme Court Rules for use in the Court. Where a form has been approved under the Uniform Rules, the form approved under the Uniform Rules takes precedence.  

Where there is no approved form under the Uniform Rules, the forms prescribed under the Supreme Court Rules should be adapted to accord with the format of documents under the Uniform Civil Procedure Rules 2005 (UCPR).

In summary:

Forms used in the Court of Appeal are approved forms under the UCPR.

Forms used in civil proceedings in the Common Law Division and the Equity Division* (except in Corporations matters) should be adapted in accordance with the UCPR.

* On 21 January 2013, prescribed probate forms 90 to 120 were repealed and replaced with approved civil forms under the Uniform Civil Procedure Rules 2005. You can access the approved forms from the Probate forms page.

There are no changes to the forms used in Corporations matters.

There are no changes to forms in the Court of Criminal Appeal or in the Criminal List of the Common Law Division.
