ADMINISTRATIVE LAW IN CANADA
Keywords:Administrative Law, Comparative Law
AbstractIn this article the author briefly examines the administrative justice sector in Canada. Through comparisons with administrative law in England and the United States, the author is able to describe the distinctively Canadian approaches, attitudes, and methods relating to Canadian administrative law. In doing so he briefly examines Canadian attitudes towards judicial review, the effect of the British North America Act on the legislatures, the limited or excluded supervisory jurisdiction of the courts, the nature and scope of statutory appeals, and the extent to which the Canadian administrative process is judicialized. The author then concludes by discussing what he predicts will be the probable course of future developments if and when the federal government conducts an inquiry similar to that conducted by the Gordon Committee on the Organization of Government in Ontario.
