2.9 Prepare a book of authorities
If you refer to one or more authorities in your factum (e.g. legislation or a previous court decision that is similar to your case) or if you intend to refer to an authority at the hearing of the appeal you must prepare a book of authorities.
You can choose to file your own book of authorities or you can agree with the respondent to file a joint book of authorities.
At least 30 days before the hearing of your appeal, you must:
- File the book of authorities. If you file in paper you will need at least 5 copies – 3 for use of the court, one copy for your own use, plus one copy for each respondent if you are not filing a joint book of authorities.
- Serve one filed copy of the book of authorities on each respondent (if you are not filing a joint book).
A book of authorities must be filed at least 30 days before the hearing of your appeal.
