Become an integral part of B.C.'s legal service

The Civil Resolution Tribunal (CRT) is an independent, quasi-judicial tribunal that operates under the authority of the Civil Resolution Tribunal Act. The CRT is Canada's first online tribunal and currently provides end-to-end dispute resolution services in strata property disputes and small claims up to $5,000. The tribunal also has jurisdiction to resolve motor vehicle personal injury disputes and some disputes involving incorporated societies and cooperative associations. The CRT encourages a collaborative, problem-solving approach to dispute resolution, rather than the traditional courtroom model by providing timely access to legal information, self-help tools, and dispute resolution services to help resolve disputes as early as possible. If parties are unable to resolve their dispute collaboratively, a CRT tribunal member makes a binding decision, enforceable as a court order. The CRT operates under five guiding principles: Timely - resolves disputes as early in the process as possible; Flexible - provides range of dispute resolution options; Accessible - available 24/7/365 and provides free supports and resources; Affordable; and Efficient.

Articled students will participate in as many of the practice areas as possible from its official list of practice areas.

The capital of British Columbia, Victoria is a beautiful city, with beautiful beaches and harbours, and a variety of provincial parks to explore. Located on Vancouver Island, Victoria offers a bustling downtown scene and has a wide range of restaurants and entertainment venues to choose from.

The CRT is committed to creating a diverse workplace to represent the population we serve and to better meet the needs of our citizens per the Public Service Act. We welcome and encourage applications from women, visible minorities, Indigenous Peoples, persons with disabilities, persons of diverse sexual orientation, gender identity or expression (LGBTQ2S+), and others who may contribute to diversity in the BC Public Service.
