  • Wildfire Season - Impact upon Process Serving an In-person Court Registry Services
  • May 13, 2024 - Sadly, the wildfire season has already begun in parts of British Columbia, and some communities have already been put on evacuation alert. Projections suggest that additional fires will widen this impact through other areas of the province as the summer season progresses. Our very mild, warm winter will only make matters worse, unfortunately.

    Wide-spread emergency situations such as these may impact our ability to serve documents or complete in-person court filings in affected areas as quickly as we might like. Be assured we are in contact with our agents throughout the province, and the situation is being monitored to the best of our ability. 

    We will strive to provide timely service in all jurisdictions, and will do our very best to ensure that business proceeds as normal. Where there is a potential for delay, we will endeavor to keep our clients informed.

    Please see the links below for up-to-date information from the Province of BC on communities which may be affected.

    Thank you for your continued support… we appreciate the opportunity to work so closely with you.
