The Honorable Nicole Duval Hesler
The Court of Appeal is the general appeal court for Québec and as such, is the highest court in Québec. It is made up of 20 judges appointed by the Government of Canada. It sits in the cities of Québec and Montréal.
In civil matters, the Court hears appeals from final judgments of the Superior Court and the Court of Québec where the amount in dispute is $50,000 or more.
The Court of Appeal also hears other appeals, specifically in matters of adoption, divorce and the protective supervision of persons of full age.
Other final judgments of the Superior Court and the Court of Québec may be appealed if leave to do so is granted by a judge of the Court of Appeal.
In criminal matters, the Court of Appeal hears appeals from verdicts of guilt or acquittal and sentencing appeals.
