FREDERICTON (GNB) –The Court of Queen’s Bench in the judicial district of Woodstock has temporarily moved all its matters to the Woodstock Baptist Church.

The reason for the relocation is to accommodate spacing requirements needed to hold jury selections and jury trials. It will also ensure the continuity of all Court of Queen’s Bench matters, including family court hearings.

The Department of Justice and Office of the Attorney General has an agreement with the church that will allow Queen’s Bench matters to take place in the church gymnasium until the end of 2020. The church is located directly across the street from Woodstock’s Justice Building.

Provincial Court matters will continue to be held at Woodstock’s existing justice building.
