Where To Find The Decisions Being Appealed

Where the decision being appealed is published on the Courts of Nova Scotia Decisions Database, there will be a link to it on the docket (in blue, underlined text). A published decision may alternately be found on the "CanLII" (Canadian Legal Information Institute) database by searching using the "Citation Number" (example: 2006 NSSC 229). Both databases are accessible free of charge.

Decisions may also be available on the Nova Scotia Barristers' Society Decisions Database. Search using the "Citation Number" (example: 2006 NSSC 229). This database is also accessible free of charge.

A paper copy of all decisions being appealed, whether published or not, can be found in the Appeal Book contained in the Appeal case file. Paper copies of these decisions may be obtained (but may be subject to a publication ban or other restrictions) for a per-page fee by attending in person at the Court of Appeal administration office at the Law Courts (see address & map above). You must provide the appeal citation number which appears in the "Case" column of the docket (example: CA 280192).

Decisions of the Workers Compensation Appeal Tribunal made in 2009 and later are available on the "CanLII" database. Those made prior to 2009 are available on the Nova Scotia Department of Labour website.

There are also several commercial publishers of Court decisions which may include the decisions being appealed to the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal on their databases. These are also only accessible by paid subscription.
