The Court of Appeal for Nova Scotia (frequently referred to as Nova Scotia Court of Appeal or NSCA) is the highest appeal court in the province of Nova Scotia, Canada. There are currently seven Justices and one Chief Justice. The court sits in Halifax, which is the capital of Nova Scotia. Cases are heard by a panel of three judges and over the year they rule on roughly 250 cases.
The court derives its power from legislation of the Nova Scotia legislature, the Judicature Act.<!-- Note: the correct name of the legislation is "Judicature Act"; its long name is "An Act Respecting the Supreme Court and Procedure in That Court". See http://canlii.org/ns/laws/sta/r1989c.240/ --> It hears appeals from the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia, Provincial Court of Nova Scotia, and various tribunals.
Only the Supreme Court of Canada has jurisdiction to hear appeals from decisions of the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal; in practice this happens a few times a year.
