As a result of the evolving public health conditions and consistent with prioritizing the health and safety of the public and the client, staff members and those appearing before the Ontario Courts or IRB or representing clients in a Visa application, the justice system is adopting a 100% online submissions and remote-only hearings model, and particularly sensitive cases are considered for expedited processing or in-person hearings where applicable on a case-by-case basis.
Although this operating model of the Government is a natural evolution of steps taken to accommodate the process without interruptions, it has introduced new challenges for legal professionals at all levels to deal with clients’ files remotely via the internet and digitally.
Protecting the client’s privacy when handling evidence, and preparing forms and submission of applications via various CRM software or internet may pose a higher risk besides making sure that files have been transmitted for processing successfully and in compliance with regulations.
