British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Ting v. Wong, 2015 BCSC 1808 (CanLII):

A consent order is a formal expression of an agreement between the parties and, where it is intended to resolve all issues it will operate as a final judgment. Shackleton v. Shackleton, 1999 BCCA 704, at para. 12.

The jurisdiction of the court to vary an entered judgment is limited to two circumstances-where there has been a “slip” in drawing the order or where the order fails to express the manifest intention of the court. Buschau v. Rogers Communications Inc., 2004 BCCA 142,at paras. 26 and 27).
