Video Library

The three levels of Court in Manitoba are excited to announce the launch of a video library on the Manitoba Courts website.

 The Manitoba Courts' video library is home to many informational and instructional videos aimed at increasing the public's access to justice. 

 Each video is available in both official languages.

 Check back to view new videos as they are added.

The images displayed in the Manitoba Courts videos are not taken from actual sittings of court. The videos, which are for educational purposes, depict simulated court proceedings involving volunteer participants.
