Courthouse visits are temporarily unavailable due to the ongoing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. While technically still open to the public, the majority of Ontario courthouses are only admitting persons with matters before the courts in an effort to help contain viral transmission and maintain public safety and the integrity of the Ontario justice system.
We recognize that this may be challenging for educators and others who rely on court observation as an enriching part of a teaching program. OJEN is in close contact with our court partners around Ontario and monitoring the situation closely. Rest assured that court visits will be available again once all stakeholders are confident that they can be conducted safely.
