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.
