Federal Court of Appeal (Canada)

The Federal Court of Appeal is a Canadian appellate court that hears cases concerning federal matters arising from certain federal Acts. The court was created on July 2, 2003 by the "Courts Administration Service Act" when it and the Federal Court were split from its predecessor, the Federal Court of Canada.


The Federal Court of Appeal hears appeals from the Federal Court, Tax Court of Canada, and certain federal tribunals, as well as applications for judicial review from certain other federal tribunals.
