Biographical history

In 1922, approved and ordered by Order-in-Council 0421-1922 (April 12, 1922), Penticton was “fixed as a place for the holding of the County Court of Yale,” effective May 1, 1922.

By the same Order-in-Council, the British Columbia government established a Supreme Court registry at Penticton, effective the same date. The OIC refers to “a registry” for the Supreme Court, but does not refer to a registry for the County Court.

All County Courts were merged into the Supreme Court on July 1, 1990.
