Courthouse Services

“There are basically four levels of court in Canada. First there are provincial/territorial courts, which handle the great majority of cases that come into the system. Second are the provincial/territorial superior courts. These courts deal with more serious crimes and also take appeals from provincial/territorial court judgments. On the same level, but responsible for different issues, is the Federal Court. At the next level are the provincial/territorial courts of appeal and the Federal Court of Appeal, while the highest level is occupied by the Supreme Court of Canada.” (From: Canada’s Court System – Department of Justice)

The courts across Canada provide a variety of services to support the general public in accessing the court system. To learn more about the court process, see the legal topic: Legal process
