Although the different sections of the L’Orignal Courthouse have different addresses, they are all located in the same building. The Ontario Court of Justice is located at 1023 King Street. The L’Orignal branch of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice is located at 59 Court Street. If you have been charged with a criminal offence in Prescott and Russell United Counties, your matter will be handled at one of these two locations. The L’Orignal Courthouse is open 8:30 am – 5 pm on weekdays. There is free parking available on the streets that surround the building.
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).
