In consultation with counsel for the participants, the Inquiry has scheduled the following dates for the public hearings:

April 29-May 3, 2019
May 13-17, 2019
May 21-24, 2019
will depend on completing the evidence in Parts I and II.
The target dates for Part III are June 10, 11 and 12, 2019.
In preparation for the public hearings, Inquiry counsel have continued to hold regular meetings with all counsel. The focus of these meetings has been the participants’ ongoing document production, key documents and witnesses. Documents are still outstanding, and the Inquiry has set a deadline of January 8, 2019 for participants to complete this task.
Once all the documents are received, the Inquiry will determine which documents are needed for the public hearings. Counsel to the Inquiry will identify necessary witnesses and prepare statements with those witnesses, so the participants will know what to expect on the hearing days.
Some participants will decline to produce certain documents because of a claim of solicitor client privilege. These privilege claims may require adjudication by an independent decision maker. Inquiry counsel will use this process as required. This will be done before the public hearings.
Kate McGrann has joined the Inquiry as Associate Counsel.

Commission will end on November 30, 2018. Ms McGrann's biography is here.
