Abstract

The author briefly surveys the state of the doctrine of judicial notice in Canada. Its rationale and the numerous facets of its scope are discussed, including: Common Law, statutory law, foreign laws, adjudicative facts, authoritative sources, legislative facts and its application by the appellate courts. He reviews the Law Reform Commission proposals and concludes with recommendations which follow these proposals.
