Ontario's Youth Courts hope to re-open about July 6, 2020 in some jurisdictions. When the Courts re-open, you will need a lawyer to help you navigate the new Court procedures that will minimize actual Court attendances for first appearance, disclosure, and set dates. Link to Ontario Court COVID-19 updates.
