Biographical history

By OIC # 0503-1897, approved November 23, 1897, the British Columbia government recommended the establishment at Rossland of a Sub-Registry of the Victoria Registry of the Supreme Court, to be termed the “Rossland Sub-Registry” for that portion of the County of Kootenay known as the Trail Creek Mining Division.

By OIC # 0071-1899, the previous OIC (0503-1897) was rescinded. The new OIC, dated January 27, 1899, ordered that a registry of the Supreme Court, to be known as the Rossland Registry, be established, effective February 15, 1899, for that portion of the County of Kootenay known as the Trail Creek Mining Division. (Note that the announcement in the BC Gazette 1899, p. 145, refers to the West Kootenay Judicial District).

Currently (to March 31, 2016) the Rossland Registry of the Supreme Court continues as an active registry.
