Within 60 days of the appellant filing a notice of appeal or having been granted leave to appeal by a justice in chambers, the Appellant must file and serve an appeal record. The appeal record contains key documents about the proceeding under appeal. Rule 19 provides details of appeal records, but it generally contains:
- documents that initiated the proceeding under appeal and the responding documents from the court below:
- a copy of the reasons for judgment;
- the order from the court below;
- the notice of appeal (or the notice of application for leave to appeal, plus the order granting the leave to appeal);
- If applicable, a notice under the Constitutional Question Act (for example, if you are challenging the constitutional validity or applicability of any law or seeking a constitutional remedy).
