Eligibility

Excuse

If you are over 70 years of age and medical issues prevent you from serving, you are not required to provide a doctor's note. Complete and return the Jury Questionnaire, stating your date of birth and your request for excuse. Mail this form to the Jury Office within 10 days of receipt of the questionnaire. If you have been summoned, call the Jury Commissioner, advise your age and medical request for excuse.

If you are under the age of 70 and have a medical disability that would prevent you from serving, you must provide a doctor's note verifying the disability. The medical note must indicate the permanent nature of your disability or, if temporary, the specific time period for which your medical excuse is valid.

Medical notes should be attached to your completed Jury Questionnaire and returned to the Jury Office as soon as possible
