PRACTICE DIRECTION – Electronic Service of Documents for the duration of the Suspension Period
 The Federal Courts Rules allow for electronic service of documents where a notice of consent has been filed with the Court: see Rule 141 and Form 141A.
 Personal service on the Crown pursuant to Rule 133 may be effected by filing one electronic copy of the document with the Registry and paying any requisite filing fee. If service is effected in this manner, the party is relieved from the requirement in that Rule to file additional two paper copies.
 A party may revoke their deemed consent to electronic service in a proceeding by filing and serving a notice of withdrawal of consent in accordance with Rule 141: see Form 141B.
 Any issues or hardship arising from the application of this direction may be brought to the Court’s attention via an informal motion submitted in writing.
