Justices of the Court:
The Supreme Court consists of the Chief Justice, an Associate Chief Justice and full time & supernumerary Justices. A Justice who is at least sixty-five years of age and has the requisite years of service may elect to become a "supernumerary". Supernumerary (semi-retired) Justices carry a reduced work load and serve in addition to the full time Justices. The number of full time and supernumerary Justices varies from time to time but according to the Judicature Act, the Supreme Court shall not have more than 40 other Justices on it at any given time.
The Supreme Court Family Division consists of an Associate Chief Justice and full time & supernumerary Justices. Some of the Justices appointed to the Supreme Court are currently on long term assignment to the Family Division and others serve in the Family Division on an occasional basis. The Family Division Justices are included in the maximum count of 40 who may sit on the Court at any given time.
