British Columbia Supreme Court Publications Ban Template Order

The Supreme Court has developed a “Publication Ban Pick List”, which sets out the mandatory and discretionary statutory publication bans available in the Criminal Code and Extradition Act, and important information that should be recorded in a publication ban order under each provision.

The Supreme Court has also developed a “Publication Ban Template Order” for use in conjunction with the Pick List.

The Pick List and Template Order are tools aimed at addressing difficulties experienced by individuals seeking to obtain complete information about the scope of a publication ban in a criminal proceeding. Applicants for a publication ban are encouraged to use the Pick List and Template Order to prepare a draft order for consideration of the Court at the hearing of the application.

Written publication ban orders made by the Court will be placed on the court file and will be available at the Criminal Registry for viewing by members of the media or public upon request.
