set for this case but, if you have been served with a notice of motion, it has a court date and you or your lawyer
should come to court for the motion. A case management judge will not be assigned until one of the parties asks the
clerk of the court to schedule a case conference or until a notice of motion under subrule 14(5) is served before a
case conference has been held. If, after 200 days, the case has not been scheduled for trial, the clerk of the court
will send out a warning that the case will be dismissed in 30 days unless the parties file proof that the case has been
settled or one of the parties asks for a case conference or a settlement conference.
IF YOU WANT TO OPPOSE ANY CLAIM IN THIS CASE, you or your lawyer must prepare an Answer (Form 10 – a
blank copy should be attached), serve a copy on the applicant(s) and file a copy in the court office with an Affidavit of
Service (Form 6B). YOU HAVE ONLY 30 DAYS AFTER THIS APPLICATION IS SERVED ON YOU (60 DAYS IF THIS
APPLICATION IS SERVED ON YOU OUTSIDE CANADA OR THE UNITED STATES) TO SERVE AND FILE AN
ANSWER. IF YOU DO NOT, THE CASE WILL GO AHEAD WITHOUT YOU AND THE COURT MAY MAKE AN ORDER
AND ENFORCE IT AGAINST YOU.
