As things are evolving with the COVID-19 response, we will keep you updated with any changes to Harbour Bay Reporter's response to the guidelines set out by the B.C. and federal government. It has been determined that legal services and the professional services supporting them are essential services.
Our current protocol regarding the COVID-19 situation is such that we are open specifically for the bookings of the small group discoveries, mediations, and meetings (as per usual). We have an intensive cleaning and self-protection regime in place to ensure the safety of our staff and healthy customers when they do find it necessary to attend at our offices during this challenging time. We ask to be vigilant with social distancing during these meetings as well.
We highly encourage our remote video webconferencing services as a very good option during these times. These are done via the internet with a web-meeting program. Please contact us for details.
Book your discovery with one of our certified, professional court reporters in one of our comfortable boardrooms at our office in Nanaimo, B.C., or have our reporter come to you in the comfort of your own office on Vancouver Island.
Boardrooms also available for mediation or other rental purposes.
Realtime services allow clients to get instant translation services on their laptop while the reporter is writing - live, real time!
SAME DAY transcript is included and available with Realtime services with a regular transcript order.
Realtime is also known as CART (Communication Access Realtime Translation).
This service can be used for examinations for discoveries or meetings, at our boardrooms or remotely at another location.
Realtime can also be used to assist anyone who is deaf or hard of hearing in meeting situations or classrooms.
Remote and/or out-of-town discoveries as well as for meetings/video web conferencing is a definite option for parties in different locations.
For example, one party at our boardrooms, and another party in another city in another location, or all parties can be in remote locations in the comfort of their own homes or offices including the court reporter.
Live Realtime writing is available with this service as well.
We also offer captioning services with Zoom for meetings or virtual classrooms, announcements, etc. This is done live by a stenographer remotely.
