The Court of Appeal for Saskatchewan

Justice must not only be done but be seen to be done.

Will I know if a publication ban has been issued on a file?

Every effort has been made to ensure that the information contained in the database is consistent with statutory and court-ordered publication and disclosure bans. Where this is known to Registry staff, it will be displayed as an ALERT on the eCourt dashboard. However, the posting of information and data in eCourt is in no way a representation, express or implied, that the information in the database conforms with publication and disclosure bans. As bans may be granted at any stage in the proceedings, the information in eCourt may not include details of a ban granted during the course of proceedings in the lower court. It is your responsibility to personally check with the registry of the applicable lower court for bans to ensure that you comply with any bans on publication or disclosure.
