The Federal Court of Appeal (French: Cour d'appel fédérale) is a Canadian appellate court that hears cases concerning federal matters.
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.
Salaries are determined annually by the Judicial Compensation and Benefits Commission. The Chief Justice receives $315,900 while other judges earn $288,100 annually.
In September 2015, the court dismissed an appeal by the Government of Canada over a ruling by the Federal Court that found a rule banning the Niqāb at citizenship ceremonies to be unconstitutional.
In August 2018, the court rejected the expansion of the Trans Mountain Pipeline on the basis that the National Energy Board's (NEB) process and findings were "so flawed that the Governor in Council could not reasonably rely on the Board’s report" and that "the Government of Canada failed to fulfill the legal duty to consult Indigenous peoples".
