The building will feature new technology to make the court run more efficiently which will help speed up the criminal justice system in the Halton Region. For example, witnesses and other vulnerable persons will be able to appear before court from remote locations through video conferencing or from a secure room through closed-circuit television.

Construction on the courthouse is expected to begin in late 2019 and be complete about four years later.

The new courthouse will be located at the intersection of William Halton Parkway and Third Line, North and west of the Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital.

To get to the new courthouse, people will be able to take the GO bus from Bronte and Oakville GO stations. The courthouse will also be accessible by a rapid transit bus, which is planned to run along Dundas Street from Bronte Road in Burlington to the Kipling TTC subway station.

The site of the future courthouse is provincially owned property.
