On August 31, 2020, the Court of Appeal of Alberta launched the public portal of its e-filing system called CAMS. The Court of Appeal Management System (CAMS) is a comprehensive case and document management system and an electronic filing system that provides registered users the ability to initiate an appeal, file materials, pay applicable fees electronically, and more. CAMS is designed to better serve the administration of justice, litigants, the Bar, and the public at large. It digitizes and automates many of the Court’s procedures and records.
Using this system, litigants and their lawyers will have online access to all of their case materials and other information about their appeals including the full text of all filed documents, deadlines, hearing dates, outcomes, and more.
