The Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador wishes to advise members of the Bar
and public that the pilot project on CourtCall telephonic courtroom appearances is
continuing in the Judicial Centres of Grand Bank and Happy Valley-Goose Bay.
Voluntary telephonic appearances through CourtCall may be made in certain matters
before the Judicial Centres of the Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador located

notwithstanding the rules on electronic conferencing contained in the Rules of the
Supreme Court, 1986.
Matters that can be heard through the use of CourtCall include:
1. Case Management Meetings;
2. Pre-trial conferences;
3. Status updates and similar appearances;
4. With prior approval from the Court, short causes and motions, including
interim/interlocutory applications; and
5. Other matters as counsel and the Court may agree.
Counsel may make a CourtCall appearance as follows:
1. NOT LESS THAN THREE (3) COURT DAYS BEFORE THE HEARING
DATE, serve and file with CourtCall (not the Court) a Request for CourtCall
Telephonic Appearance (see www.courtcall.com):
2. Pay a fee of $55.00 to CourtCall, LLC.
A confirmation from CourtCall, LLC, will be emailed or faxed to your office upon the
filing and payment outlined above.
A CourtCall appearance is made as part of a Court’s usual calendar. Unless notified to
the contrary, all counsel who have filed on a timely basis their Request and have paid the
fee may appear by dialling the toll-free teleconference number provided by CourtCall,
LLC (provided that they have also obtained prior approval from the Court for
matters included in items 4 and 5 above). A pre-hearing check-in will occur five
minutes before the scheduled hearing time.
A CourtCall appearance is voluntary and may be made without consent of the other party.
The Court, however, reserves the discretion to require personal appearance.
