Kelowna Law Courts

The Supreme Court, Provincial Court, Crown Council, Probation, and other court-related functions are housed at the Kelowna BC Law Courts facility, a six-story building. Six variable volume air handlers and approximately 150 VAV and fan-powered box zones make up the mechanical equipment. Regardless of the number of people in the room or the amount of activity, the temperature in the courtrooms must be kept within 1.5 ° C. It’s critical that the systems work quietly and that the temperature does not vary. Since its completion in 1994, the structure has lived up to expectations.


The Kelowna Law Courts are located at 1355 Water Street / Smith Avenue and were constructed in 1992-94 in a modern style. Toby, Russell, Buckwell Partners, and Barnes Swab Partners Architects designed the building, and Graham Construction & Engineering ( 1985 ) Ltd was awarded the contract.

General Knowledge:

 Types Of Cases:

There are mainly 5 types of cases that are handled in Kelowna Law Courts.

  • Criminal Cases
  • Family Cases
  • Youth Court Cases
  • Small Claims Cases
  • Traffic & Bylaw Cases

Kelowna Integrated Court:

An Integrated Court Steering Committee said in 2018 that Kelowna, one of BC’s fastest-growing metropolitan districts, saw increases in homelessness, drug overdose deaths, crime, and a decrease in affordable housing.

The Kelowna Integrated Court, like the Downtown Community Court in Vancouver, started in 2008. The Victoria Integrated Court, which opened in 2010, will focus primarily on offenders battling addiction, mental health concerns, or homelessness.

Although an Integrated Court (sometimes known as a “community court”) is not a trial court, it can hold bail hearings or accept a guilty plea and be sentenced there. People who plead not guilty will have their cases heard in a regular courtroom.
