Biographical history

The date of the establishment of the County Court at Lillooet has not yet been determined by BC Archives research staff (to March 2016).

On January 9, 1975, the British Columbia government approved and ordered OIC # 0091-1975, which disestablished the registries of both the County Court and Supreme Court established at Lillooet, effective 1975 April 1. The same order applied to the County Court and Supreme Court registries at Kaslo and Vanderhoof.

On February 27, 1975, the British Columbia government approved and ordered OIC # 0803-1975. This ordered that the previous order, OIC # 0091-1975, be amended, revoking its application to the registries of the Supreme Court and of the County Court at Lillooet (and at Vanderhoof).

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