Court of original general jurisdiction under the legislative authority of the Quebec government. However, its judges are appointed by the federal government. The Superior Court of Québec hears, in first instance, any application that a provision of the law has not exclusively assigned to another court. It is therefore generally competent in litigations where the value of the amount in dispute or the amount claimed is at least $ 85,000 and to hear, without limitation, applications for injunctions. It holds its hearings in all the judicial districts of the province.
