The Code of Civil Procedure, as it then was, had been adopted in 1965 and had been partially modified over time. During the last few years, a large number of collaborators and specialists have been consulted in order to conduct an in-depth review of the Code and to facilitate access to justice.
In September 2011, a draft version was filed with the National Assembly by the then Minister of Justice, Jean-Marc Fournier: 49 reports were submitted during public hearings held in January 2012.
On April 30, 2013, the Minister of Justice, Bertrand St-Arnaud, filed Bill 28. It has also been subject to public hearings: 14 groups were heard and 21 reports were submitted.
Clause-by-clause consideration of Bill 28 by the Committee on Institutions began on October 8, 2013. This Committee sat for 30 sittings, totalling more than 106 hours. Some 30 amendments and 5 under-amendments were adopted. On February 20, 2014, Bill 28, including the amendments, was passed. The official version of the CCP was received by APSOQ on March 14, 2014.
