Ontario Remand Court Appearances: A New Criminal Defence Article

OTTAWA CRIMINAL DEFENCE LAWYER – “Remand Court” is a term you may have come across reading news items such as the CBC’s recent piece, “Ottawa terror suspect has charges added.” It might also be a term you’ve come across because you’re scheduled to appear in one.

If you fall into the second category, you’re probably going through some stress and confusion. You might be wondering: what exactly is a Remand Court and is it any different from a regular courtroom? You might also be questioning whether or not you need a criminal defence lawyer at this stage of the process.

There’s not a lot of accessible information about Ontario Remand Courts online, so I put together an in-depth article: Appearing in Canadian Remand Court. It explains some of the reasons why remand court is different from other courts in Ontario and Canada. It also gives some practical advice on how you can prepare.

There are a couple of key points that inspired the article, and are important for you to note:

  1. Remand Court is very different from criminal trials and pre-trial hearings; you should be aware of these differences and prepare accordingly.
  2. Hiring a lawyer can help relieve some of the stress and make your Remand Court Appearance go by smoothly and efficiently.


If you’re preparing to make an appearance in remand court, hiring an experienced criminal defence lawyer can make the process smoother and less stressful – especially if your charges are serious.
