User Registration Guidelines:

User accounts fall under one of two categories: Law Firm Users and Self Represented Litigants. The registration process is different for each.

Law Firm Users: Each Law Firm should only use this form once to create a ‘Law Firm Administrator’ account. That account can then be used to create individual accounts for lawyers and support staff as well as additional ‘Administrator’ accounts. (See our FAQ section for further information on Law Firm Administrator accounts).

If your firm has already registered with eCourt then you need not fill out this form. Please contact your Law Firm Administrator to create your individual account. To find out who your Law Firm Administrator is please email us at CARegistrar@sasklawcourts.ca.

Self Represented Litigants: register using the form below to become an approved filer. Once registered you may file a new appeal, apply for leave to appeal or file documents for an existing appeal. Please fill out all required field information correctly.

Terms of Use

Your use of the eCourt web portal and the Court of Appeal for Saskatchewan (the “Court”) electronic case and document management and filing system (“eCourt”) is conditional upon your receipt of prior, written authorization from the Registrar of the Court of Appeal for Saskatchewan (the “Registrar”).  For personal authorization to use eCourt as an approved filer, follow the process for approval on this eCourt web portal at this location.

 

YOUR APPLICATION FOR AUTHORIZATION AND YOUR SUBSEQUENT USE OF eCOURT OR ANY FILE INFORMATION, DATA OR MATERIALS AVAILABLE THROUGH eCOURT (the “Content”) CONSTITUTES YOUR EXPRESS AND UNCONDITIONAL UNDERTAKING TO THE COURT TO COMPLY WITH THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CONTAINED ON THIS WEBPAGE (these “Terms of Use”).  PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF USE CAREFULLY.

 

IF YOU ARE NOT AN APPROVED FILER OR YOU DO NOT ACCEPT ANY OF THE FOLLOWING TERMS OF USE, DO NOT ACCESS OR USE eCOURT OR ANY CONTENT.


Use Constitutes an Undertaking.  These Terms of Use govern your use of eCourt and the Content.  By accessing or using eCourt, you are acknowledging that you have read and understand these Terms of Use.  Your initial, and each subsequent, access to and use of eCourt or any Content constitutes your due and valid authorization, execution and delivery of these Terms of Use as your personal, continuing undertaking to the Court to abide by these Terms of Use in respect of your use of eCourt and the Content.  You are further representing and warranting that these Terms of Use constitute a legal, valid and binding obligation and undertaking enforceable against you.  In that respect, by accessing or using eCourt, you are also representing and warranting that you have legal capacity and full legal authority to undertake to abide by these Terms of Use on your own behalf and that you are not seeking authorization to access or use eCourt on behalf of any third party or undisclosed principal.

 

Legislation and Rules.  The Court of Appeal Act, 2000, S.S. 2000, The Court of Appeal Rules, The Saskatchewan Court of Appeal Criminal Appeal Rules, and all Practice Directives (both civil and criminal) of the Court apply to all users of eCourt and to all Content.  Filing an electronic document via eCourt does not extend any filing deadline or affect the application of any rule of the Court or of practice.

 

Use and Reliance.  Neither the Court nor the Registrar is responsible for any loss arising from any use of or reliance on eCourt or any Content for any purpose, or for any other loss or damage whatsoever and howsoever arising from any use of or reliance on eCourt, any Content or other data, or any software, computer or computer system associated with eCourt.  As with the official record, neither the Court nor the Registrar guarantees or assumes any liability for the accuracy, completeness, currency, reliability or timeliness of any file information, data or materials on eCourt.  All users of eCourt do so strictly at their own risk.

 

Fee Payments.  By accessing and using eCourt, you are irrevocably and unconditionally authorizing the Registrar to collect payment from you, in accordance with any financial information that you have provided to the Registrar or a third party online payment processing agent for that purpose, in respect of all use of eCourt by you that gives rise to a fee. The Registrar will refund any fee paid in association with the electronic submission of a document for filing through eCourt where the Registrar has rejected the submission.

 

Prohibited Conduct.  You undertake not to upload, email, post or transmit to, distribute, disseminate, or otherwise publish or make available through eCourt anything of any nature or kind, and you undertake not to otherwise take any action or permit anyone to take any action, that:

Third Party Content.  All Content of whatever nature or kind that originates from a source other than the Court or the Registrar (collectively, “Third Party Content”) that is made available on eCourt is the sole responsibility of the third party who filed, transmitted or otherwise made available such Third Party Content.  You are solely responsible for all Third Party Content that you file, transmit or otherwise make available via eCourt.  Your use of or access to eCourt or any Content does not in any way transfer or assign to you any ownership or other proprietary rights in or to eCourt or any Content.  You are prohibited from representing any reproduction of the Content as having been made in affiliation with or with the endorsement of the Court.  You are prohibited from reproducing multiple copies of any Content for the purposes of commercial redistribution.  Your use and reproduction of any Third Party Content may be restricted under the Copyright Act (Canada) and other legislation.  If you wish to rely upon Third Party Content, you should contact the source of that Content.  These Terms of Use shall not be construed as conferring any right under any copyright.
