New Regulations in Court of Appeal – Beware of the 10-page limit!

New Regulations in Court of Appeal – Beware of the 10-page limit!

The Court of Appeal has adopted new Civil Practice Regulations which came into force on January 14, 2016.  Of note are Rules 27 and 59 that limit all Notices of Appeal / Demandes d’appel (formerly the inscription in appeal) and all “Applications in the Course of a Proceeding” / “Demandes en cours d’instance” (Motions) to 10 pages.

We understand that the Court of Appeal has taken the position that this covers all applications / demandes that are made to the Court, including Applications for Leave to Appeal. The page limit includes the conclusions to the notice or application, even if they are lengthy. The Court has refused filings that exceed 10 pages. 

Those waiting until the last day to file should be particularly vigilant regarding these new Regulations, since article 353 of the new Code of Civil Procedure specifies that “[T]he time limits for appeal are strict time limits, and the right to appeal is forfeited on their expiry.”
