Courthouse shut March 17 in light of COVID-19 pandemic

The Nunavut Court of Justice in Iqaluit opens today for limited in-person court appearances.

The courthouse had suspended all regular activities on March 17 in light of COVID-19 restrictions.

Last week, Dr. Michael Patterson, Nunavut’s chief public health officer, announced that the territory would begin easing restrictions today.

A designated assignment court week, where lawyers and judges schedule upcoming court appearances, will begin today, June 1, a memo issued on May 27 by the Nunavut Court of Justice said.

Socially distanced waiting areas will be provided to counsel outside the courtrooms while they wait for their matters to be called.
