The Courts We Support

CAS’s service delivery model is centered on meeting the specific requirements of four separate and independent courts, each with distinct priorities, challenges, expec­tations and client needs.

The role of CAS is to provide administrative services to the Federal Court of Appeal, the Federal Court the Court Martial Appeal Court of Canada and the Tax Court of Canada. These four courts are superior courts of record. They were established by the Parliament of Canada pursuant to its authority under section 101 of the Constitution Act, 1867 “for the better administration of the Laws of Canada.”

In the exercise of their respective roles, each court makes decisions, interprets and establishes precedents, sets standards and raises questions of law on matters which affect the lives of Canadians and foreigners. The services provided by CAS permit individuals, companies, organizations and the federal and provincial governments to submit disputes and other matters to the courts, and enable the courts to hear and resolve the cases before them fairly, expeditiously and as efficiently as possible.
