The Brockville Courthouse is located at 41 Court House Square. A historic building with modern renovations, the courthouse is one of the most picturesque in the province. The Brockville Courthouse is home to both the Ontario Court of Justice and the Ontario Superior Court of Justice. All the courtrooms are located on the north-side of the first and second floors, in a renovated addition to the original building.
Conveniently, Leeds and Greenville’s Provincial Offences Court is located across the street from the Brockville Court House, at 32 Wall Street.
The Brockville Courthouse is open from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm on weekdays. Unlike in Ottawa, the Courthouse does not perform security screening. Limited term free parking is available in the streets that surround the building, and there is meter parking that stretches down to the waterway and throughout downtown Brockville. There are also 7 municipal lots scattered throughout downtown Brockville. For a downtown parking map, visit the City of Brockville website.
If you would like more information about the courthouse, including the requirements to request interpreter services, courtroom layouts, and guides on how to prepare for court appearances, please consult the Justice Ontario website. If you have to appear in either the Ontario Court of Justice, or the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, the Ministry of the Attorney General publishes daily court lists at 4:30 pm for the proceedings that will occur the following day. These lists are sometimes unreliable, as matters often get moved to other courtrooms on the day of the appearance. If you are required to appear at the courthouse, DUVADIE Law will ensure that you are informed of exactly where you need to be and at what time you need to be there (as soon as this information becomes available).

DUVADIE LAW’S RESULTS IN Brockville
Facts: N.B. was helping deliver a car that a friend of his had purchased. The car was bought on Kijiji, and N.B. was enlisted to deliver the vehicle to a city outside the province. Due to delays, the temporary sticker on the license plate of the purchased car had expired before N.B. was able to complete the delivery. An OPP officer spotted the expired tag and pulled N.B. over in Brockville. The officer checked the ownership of the vehicle, and discovered that it was registered in the name of the previous owner. The police disbelieved N.B.’s explanation that he was delivering the car for his friend, and became suspicious that the friend did not exist. They charged N.B. with fraud, alleging that he had posed as the previous owner when registering the plates of the car. During negotiations with the prosecutor, DUVADIE Law focused on the absence of evidence that it was N.B. who registered the plates fraudulently.
Outcome: The charges were withdrawn.
