Appellate Review: Criminal Law

The Honourable Justice Malcolm H Rowe & Michael Collins

Abstract: Most provinces and territories in Canada have provided for a single flexible right of appeal in civil appeals. By contrast, the Criminal Code defines different rights of appeal for different kinds of decisions. This special feature provides an overview of appeals from convictions, acquittals, stays of proceedings, and sentences. It discusses which courts have the power to hear appeals, the approach to leave to appeal, and the applicable standards of review.
