Except for the three forms which are part of the NEW Criminal Rules, the Provincial Court form files on this site have been named using the assigned form number and whether the form is in English or in French or both. There are basically three main things that distinguish the forms:The prefix before the file number: There will be either an "e", and "f", an "ef" or an "fe" depending on the file.
"e" means that the form is only in English.
"f" means the form is only in French.
"ef" means that the English and French forms are on back-to-back pages (double sided).
"fe" means that the form is bilingual; the French and English text are on the same page. The French and English versions of forms that are longer than one page (one sheet), have been set up in separate files.
The form number: The form number in the filename is the form number that appears on the top of the document. For instance, form number 52/49 has the digits "-52-49-" in the filename. Form 4/6 is named with "-4-6-" so that it will not be confused with form 46, which is named with "-46-".
The form types: There are only two main types of forms available on this page; ones you can fill out on your computer using WordPerfect software and ones that must be printed blank and then filled out manually.
To print a blank form and then fill it out manually, click on the "PDF" or the "WPD" link to the left of the form number and name in the pages of forms accessed through the links above (CRIMINAL COURT FORMS ..... YOUTH COURT FORMS ..... PROVINCIAL OFFENCE FORMS).
To fill out the interactive PDF forms on your computer accessed through the link above (CRIMINAL RULES & FORMS FOR ALL APPLICATIONS), click on the form number link on that page.
To fill the form out on your computer (if you have WordPerfect software), click on the "WP-M" link to the left of the form number and name in the pages of forms accessed through the links above (CRIMINAL COURT FORMS ..... YOUTH COURT FORMS ..... PROVINCIAL OFFENCE FORMS). Instructions on how to fill out these "WordPerfect-Merge" forms on your computer are found below.
When the "Perform Merge" window appears, click on the "Merge" button.
Once this has been done, Wordperfect will bring up a "merged" version of the form.
This is the one that you will fill out. The cursor will be blinking in the first form blank.
Begin by typing your text in the first blank. When you are done, click on the "Continue"
button on the bottom menu bar at the top of the screen.
The cursor will then be brought to the next blank on the form.
To move from blank to blank, always use the Continue button, or ALT+SHIFT+C keys.
The TAB key should not be used to move between blanks, except in the case where a table is included in the form.
The image below shows a table in a form. To move from cell to cell in a table, you may use the TAB key, or the arrow keys.
Please keep in mind that adding rows to tables will alter the placement of the blanks on the lower part of the form.
For this reason, please try to keep the number of rows to the preset table size.
When you are finished entering information into the table, click on Continue, or use the ALT+SHIFT+C keys.
Where boxes appear on forms, the easiest way to fill them in is to place an "X" in the blank provided.
Textboxes are used to enter text into a form. See the next image for an example.
Adding more lines of text than there is space for the text will cause the formatting of the lower portion of the form to change.
If more room is needed, changing the font and size of the text may allow you to add more to the textbox.
Again, another example of text in a textbox.
Once you have entered all your text into the box, clicking on Continue (or using ALT+SHIFT+C)
allows you to continue on to the next blank in the form.
When you leave the textbox, your text will appear as if it is part of the form.
When you have finished filling in all of the blanks, either hit Continue until you reach the end of the form, or click the Stop button on the merge toolbar. This will bring you back to a clean version of the form, which will include the text you have entered into it. If you wish to print the form, do so now. When you are done, close the form, and do not save a copy of it. This will bring you back to the original copy of the form with the red merge codes on it. Close this original copy of the form too. Do not save any changes to this original copy.
