The A. Grenville and William Davis Courthouse in Brampton is the busiest courthouse in the province. A two-phase project to build an addition to the existing courthouse was approved in 2016-17, and phase one was completed in 2020.
The first phase involved construction of a six-floor addition and fit-out of the basement and floors one and two. The second phase will be a fit-out of the remaining shelled floors of the addition and partial renovation of the existing courthouse and adjacent Land Registry building.
The Toronto Region Bail Centre involves renovation of the existing courthouse building to accommodate adult bail operations once the new Toronto courthouse opens in 2022. Once completed, the courthouse will operate as a functional regional bail centre with the technology required to deliver modern and accessible justice services and interconnectivity with the new Toronto courthouse.
