Introduction to Judicial Interpretations

The purpose of this site is to provide users with the principles of law - those established by the Federal Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada regarding the issues that most frequently arise under the Employment Insurance Act.

This database is designed for easy use. The subject index is not exhaustive, but it does provide a list of the issues that are most often considered by the Board of Referees, Umpires and the Federal Court of Appeal. The relevant section of the legislation appears under each subject heading.

Please note that some cases may not be available when selected as they are not posted on the Court's Web site.

Once a topic is selected, the user can read

  • the relevant sections of the legislation, by clicking on the highlighted sections;
  • a summary of the principles of law established by the Federal Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada; and
  • the entire text of those cases referred to in the summary, by clicking on the names of the cases that appear in the principles of law

Please note that some cases may not be available when selected as they are not posted on the Court's Web site.
