Ontario’s court system will creep closer to the modern age – as the attorney general announces Wi-Fi for antiquated courthouses, jury summons via email or text – and even some online divorce filings.

Attorney General Yasir Naqvi says the current system is still very much a paper-based one.

The new measures include Wi-Fi in all courts by 2019.

There will also be more digital options for the jury process – such as completing questionnaires online, and receiving summonses by email or text.

Just days ago, people could start filing civil claims online – and beginning in May,  Ontarians can file other documents in civil cases, such as statements of defence, online.

Other parts of the plan include having inmates appear by video at more pre-trial appearances – building an online dispute resolution platform for landlord and tenant conflicts – and a previously announced step to allow the resolution of traffic tickets online.
