Welcome to the Court Services Branch juror eResponse system.

The primary purpose of the eResponse system is to provide a quick easy way to respond to a juror summons.  You can log into this system anytime to:   

  • Confirm your attendance for the selected date(s) on your summons.

  • Request to be excused/exempt from selection date(s) for specific reasons.

  • Claim disqualification on specific grounds.

  • Update your personal details (email, occupation, address etc.).

  • Check on the status of your attendance or excusal request.

  • Check for selection date cancellations.

 Please note: if there are multiple jury selection dates listed on your summons package and you can attend some but not all dates, please contact the sheriffs at 1-855-660-0605 to discuss your excusal request.

 

In all circumstances, it is your responsibility to attend jury selection as indicated on your summons unless you have received a dismissal, excusal or cancellation notice either from this system or by email from the sheriff’s office.


TIMELINES TO REMEMBER :

You must respond to your summons either:

  • Online through the eResponse system at least two days prior to your jury selection date; or

  • By mailing in your certification form (the bottom portion of your summons) by the time period stated on your summons.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION BEFORE YOU LOG INTO ERESPONSE

Please make note of the following important information that you will need to know when you enter the system:


For those 65 years of age and over

  • If you would like to be excused from this jury selection but keep your name available for future jury selections, log into eResponse and select the “Excuse Service” exemption.

  • If you would like to be removed permanently from this and any future jury selections, select “Disqualify Service.” For this option, it is NOT necessary for you to call or confirm this with the sheriff’s office.  If any further verification is required, the sheriffs will contact you.

For those wanting to check on status of their excusal request

  • Log into eResponse and navigate to the “Profile/Status & Service information” tab. This area will also include notifications of jury selection cancellations.
