Once complete, the new courthouse will allow for an overall reduction in costs, improve operations, provide equal access to services, and will ensure the province's real estate portfolio is sustainable, accessible, and efficient.

The project will be designed to achieve a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Silver certification with a focus on energy efficiency, healthy indoor environments, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.

Construction will begin in spring 2018.
