The SCJ has a new provincial Notice to the Profession which takes effect on September 13th, 2021 and is available here.
You will see in the linked Notice that the SCJ is introducing province-wide page restrictions for both conferences and short/regular motions. Recognizing that materials may already be in progress for upcoming attendances, they have asked Court Services staff not to strictly enforce these new restrictions until the end of September. That being said, judges are already aware of these new restrictions and counsel should therefore not expect them to have reviewed materials that exceed the restrictions barring unusual circumstances.
