PRE-TRIAL ADR

You Must Try to Work It Out!

According to the new Alberta Rules of Court, before you can get a trial date for a Court of Queen's Bench civil action, you must try to resolve your case using certain court-approved dispute resolution processes. This is mandatory. In other words, before you can ask for your day in court, you must try to settle your dispute out of court. This is also known as Dispute Resolution.

Please note: Rule 4.16 is very new. In the future more options will likely become available, especially in the "court-annexed" category.
