Posted by Niagara Region on Tuesday, September 10th, 2019

The St. Catharines Provincial Courthouse will close as part of Niagara Region's efforts to consolidate its court services. Beginning at noon on Oct. 31, 2019, all provincial offence services will operate out of the Welland Courthouse, located at 445 East Main St.
