The Alberta Courts are piloting a system for completing Gladue Report Request forms through an online portal.
Until further notice, lawyers practicing in Edmonton are encouraged to file Gladue Report Request forms for cases that are before either the Provincial Court or the Court of Queen’s Bench in Edmonton via this online portal.
The Gladue Report Request form is available on the Courts’ website here:
Provincial Court of Alberta > Resources > Practice Directions and Forms > Criminal Practice Directions and Forms > Gladue Report Request Form
Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta > Areas of Law > Criminal > Gladue Resources > Gladue Report Request Form [a link to the online form is also available under Criminal Forms on the QB website]
This form is for use only by Defence Counsel after the Court has ordered a Gladue Report be prepared for sentencing purposes. There are a number of mandatory fields, which must be completed by Defence counsel, so that the Gladue Report can be prepared in a timely manner. Once completed by Defence Counsel, this form is automatically submitted to the necessary offices for handling. Counsel are strongly encouraged to use this form as a more efficient means of obtaining Gladue Reports.
Following the conclusion of the pilot project and subsequent evaluation, further information will be provided.
