What is the Court of Appeal's function?
The Court of Appeal provides a forum for parties to appeal the outcome of a lower court decision from the Supreme Court (including the Family Division), certain decisions of the Provincial Court or the Family Court, and administrative tribunal decisions. The Appeal Court does not re-try cases, but reviews the record of the trial to ensure that no errors of law were made by the lower court.
Court of Appeal has the authority to dismiss the appeal (confirming
the decision of the lower court); allow the appeal and order a new trial;
or allow the appeal, but change the order of the lower court.
