The authors examine court administration in Canada during the COVID-19 crisis. Until recently, court administration has lagged behind other aspects of pandemic scholarship; in recent times, particularly in the U.S., a body of literature has developed to deal with this problem. Courts have initiated plans to deal with disasters. However, the coronavirus pandemic has presented a new set of problems for court administration that were largely unplanned for. The authors discuss these issues and propose adoption of innovative technologies to aid in dealing with some of the immediate problems, but also to move toward broader adoption of helpful technologies to bring court administration into the 21st century.
