Canada Decisions

The highest court in Canada is the Supreme Court of Canada, which consists of nine judges. The Supreme Court reviews appeals from the Provincial and Territorial Courts of Appeal, as well as the Federal Court of Appeal. It also may issue decisions on important constitutional questions and complex issues involving private or public law. The Federal Court of Appeal reviews decisions by the Federal Court and the Tax Court in areas such as intellectual property, maritime law, disputes between federal and provincial governments, and tax assessments. Most provinces have lower courts, superior courts, and appeal courts.
