Welcome to the Civil Resolution Tribunal
COVID-19 Update. The CRT remains open and fully operational. We have taken steps to protect the health of parties, staff, and the public, while ensuring the tribunal continues to provide dispute resolution services as normally as possible. More information.
The government has issued a Ministerial Order which suspends limitation periods for bringing actions in the court. This does not apply to the CRT. However, the tribunal has some discretion to waive, suspend or extend mandatory time periods. More information.
We know that COVID-19 related issues may affect a party’s ability to receive or respond to a Dispute Notice, or otherwise meet deadlines. If you need an extension of time due to COVID-19, please contact us with your Dispute Number.
In the interest of fairness, the CRT did not process requests for default decisions and orders between March 18 and May 31, 2020. As of June 1, 2020, requests for default decisions and orders are being processed based on the date the dispute became eligible for a party to request a default decision and order. The CRT may continue to exercise its discretion to extend timelines for respondents to submit completed Dispute Responses.
Changes are coming to the CRT’s motor vehicle injury (MVI) jurisdiction next year, beginning May 1, 2021. More information in our blog post.
