The Federal Court of Appeal (French: Cour d'appel fédérale) is a Canadian appellate court that hears cases concerning federal matters arising from certain federal Acts. The court was created on July 2, 2003, by the Courts Administration Service Act when it and the Federal Court were split from its predecessor, the Federal Court of Canada.
Salaries are determined annually by the Judicial Compensation and Benefits Commission. The Chief Justice receives $315,900 while other judges earn $288,100 annually.
The Federal Court of Appeal hears appeals from the Federal Court, Tax Court of Canada, and certain federal tribunals, as well as applications for judicial review from certain other federal tribunals.
