"Once your case has started, you or your partner must schedule a trial within 365 days."
What this means is that, after 365 days, if the next step has not been scheduled then the case can receive a "notice of approaching dismissal" (NAD) - meaning the entire case is dismissed for inactivity.

The original objective was to see cases set down for trial within a year of being started however that varies widely by jurisdiction. There are places in Ontario where you can get the trial date within a year; and there are places where you are unlikely to be heard within 3 years.

Is it 365 days from the time the application to divorce is filed (i'm the applicant), or is it 365 days from the time a case conference is requested?
From the date the case was commenced - this is the day you first filed for divorce and paid your $167.
