Court centre in Weyburn set to reopen

Weyburn’s Court and registry office is set to reopen on Monday.

This will allow residents to pay fines and file court documents in person at the office.

“This re-opening is important for the Weyburn area, to improve access to justice and provide direct, personal contact for community members with court workers,” says Justice Minister and Attorney General Bronwyn Eyre.

“It will also reduce travel time for those attending court and ensure that local criminal and civil matters are handled efficiently.”

The registry office will be open to the public Monday to Friday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

In October of last year, the Government of Saskatchewan announced that the Weyburn Court of King’s Bench judicial centre would be re-opened and, since then, the Ministry of Justice and Attorney General has worked with the Chief Justice of the Court of King’s Bench to formalize the re-opening plan.

New staff has been hired and trained to operate the new office. The boundaries of the new judicial centre will now be set so that jury trials can be scheduled in Weyburn and a jury pool can be accessed.
