It's easy, they simply adopt the federal court system, they don't have to reinvent the wheel or spend a fortune (But you know, instead they will spend a fortune and blow it). Easy to set up a system whereby for each court file there is a secure website; documents to be filed can be uploaded to it, all parties are notified via an email or text alert, judge or master assigned can access all documents, can print them, can post decisions, etc. All this filing of bound documents, cirlox, etc. belongs in pre-2000.

Law Times poll

Law Times reports the Ontario Court of Appeal has ruled that a foster mother can be named a party in a child protection case, if it’s in the child’s best interests. Do you think recognizing foster parents will serve the best interests of children?
Yes, recognizing foster parents as parties in child protection cases will help improve the well-being of children.
No, this decision could cause implications resulting in the permanent abolishment of the child-parent relationship.
