Scope and content

This series consists of case files for each appeal brought before the Supreme Court. They are numbered consecutively, beginning with the first case in 1876. The cases involve all type of law, whether civil or criminal. Complete files provide all of the material that the Justices read in order to render their judgments, including the evidence and proceedings of lower trial courts and provincial courts of appeal. Case files also include the documents that must be filed in order to have an appeal heard. The files usually contain applications and grants of leave to appeal, writs, statements of claims, affidavits, exhibits, and both the appellant's and respondent's facta (statements of fact). Finally, the case files provide the decision of all the Justices (including dissenting Justices) who provided written judgments.
