Publication Ban Notification Project
The Publication Ban Notification Project provides the public with timely information regarding applications
for discretionary publication bans or to exclude the public from the courtroom. The Project applies only to criminal
and quasi-criminal proceedings in the Vancouver and New Westminster Supreme Court registries.
A party in a criminal or quasi-criminal proceeding who intends to apply for a discretionary publication ban or to exclude
the public from the courtroom is required by practice direction to complete a
notification form. The information in that form is then transmitted by email to subscribers to
the notification service.
Please consult the practice direction for detailed information regarding this Project, including a list of applications that trigger the notice requirement.
