Queen's Bench


The Court of Queen's Bench is the superior court in several Canadian provinces, including:

There was formerly a Court of King's Bench created in the British colony of Quebec in 1764; it was also known as the supreme or superior court until 1775. It was then abolished and re-established in 1777, following the Quebec Act. Following the separation of Upper and Lower Canada in 1791, the single court was replaced by several courts of King's bench of each region of the two new provinces. In 1849, the districts were reunited once again.[1]
