Scope and content

The series consists of case files created by the Victoria Court of Appeal between 1980 and 1990. The Appeal Court is the highest court in the province, and hears appeals from both the Supreme Court and the Provincial Court. Records in this series are arranged numerically. Until 1984, the Court used a system of file numbers that started from 1 and refreshed every year. Records dating from 1985 onwards use a sequential ā€œVā€ number that was a continual running number that did not refresh each year.

The Court of Appeal is constituted by the Court of Appeal Act (RSBC 1996, c. 77). The Court of Appeal is headed by the Chief Justice of BC and includes 14 other justices and several supernumerary justices.
