Court Of Queens Bench Of Alberta Lifts Suspension Of The ADR/JDR Rules

Sunday, 6th May 2019

"A notice from the Court of Queen's Bench of Alberta (March 12, 2019) brings a return of mandatory dispute resolution before trial for civil actions.

On March 12, 2019, the Court of Queen's Bench of Alberta announced that it will lift the suspension of the ADR/JDR Rules on a one-year pilot project basis. Effective September 1, 2019, the ADR/JDR Rules will be in effect for all civil actions scheduled after that date.

Rules 8.4(3)(a) and 8.5(1)(a) of the Alberta Rules of Court, (otherwise known as the "ADR/JDR Rules"), requiring parties to conduct an Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR) or a Judicial Dispute Resolution (JDR) before setting a matter for trial, were suspended in July 2013 by former Chief Justice and Associate Chief Justice of the Alberta Court of Queen's Bench. At that time, limited judicial resources were being stretched beyond capacity and lead times for JDRs were unacceptably long. As such, the suspension of the ADR/JDR Rules was a reasonable response."
