The Supreme Court of Canada’s Administrative Law Trilogy: A New Era for Regulated Businesses, Projects and Professionals


April 9, 2020

Time of event


On December 19, 2019, the Supreme Court of Canada released its decisions in a Trilogy of cases that fundamentally alter the framework for judicial reviews and statutory appeals from all administrative decision-makers: Canada (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration) v. Vavilov, 2019 SCC 65; Bell Canada v. Canada (A.G.), 2019 SCC 66. The decisions have created a shift in standard of review for administrative appeals and have added clarity on how regulators fit into the broader legal system.

Businesses and professionals who participate in regulated industries can benefit from McCarthy Tétrault’s in-depth understanding of the implications of the new framework. Join our leading litigation team who successfully represented the appellants in two of the three Trilogy appeals to unravel this new framework and understand what the decisions mean for your business.
