Definition : Superior Court of Québec

Court of original general jurisdiction under the legislative authority of the Quebec government. The Superior Court of Quebec hears, at first instance, any application not formally and exclusively assigned by law to another court or to an adjudicative body. It is therefore competent in general litigation matters where the value is at least $ 85,000 and to hear, in particular, applications for an injunction. It is vested with a general power of judicial review over all courts in Québec other than the Court of Appeal, over public bodies, over legal persons, over partnerships and associations.
