Canadian Courts

Courts are generally listed in order of hierarchy from lower (left) to superior (right) in the table below the hierarchy diagram. Where more than one court is listed in the same column, this does NOT indicate hierarchy (for example, the Court Martial Appeal Court is not superior to the Tax Court, they simly have different jurisdictions). Where courts do not provide their own online indexes of judgments, links to the appropriate CanLII databases have been provided where possible. If you find any broken or out-of-date links, please notify HelpDesk.

*Important note about Québec judgments*We have provided links to the CanLII Québec databases as well as the official Government of Québec website because the official database only provides a French interface. Most judgments are rendered in French and are sometimes translated to an unofficial English version. To find English decisions, use English keywords, to find the French, use French keywords. If you have already know which case(s) you are looking for, search by citation if possible.
