Judicial Deference to Administrative Tribunals in Canada: Its History and Future

Résumé (en anglais seulement)

Is the decision of an administrative tribunal owed deference on the review standard of “reasonableness”? What constitutes an “unreasonable” interpretation of the law? What is the proper application of the deferential standard of review? In short – and based on the ongoing evolution of the deference doctrine – when is it appropriate for a reviewing court to intervene in a decision of an administrative tribunal?

These are just some of the issues that are addressed in this new volume of essays, Judicial Deference to Administrative Tribunals in Canada: Its History and Future. Written by three of the country’s leading experts on the subject, this collection of commentaries critiquing the Supreme Court of Canada’s jurisprudence on the principle of judicial deference offers an authoritative overview of the evolution and development of the doctrine.
