Court of Appeal of Quebec

Steps following the opening of a appeal file in a criminal matter

The clerk will assign a file number in appeal upon receipt of a notice of appeal or a motion for leave to appeal (e.g.: for Montreal 500-10-000000-000 or 500-08-000000-000 and for Quebec City 200-10-000000-000 or 200-08-000000-000). This is the number that must be used as of then in all pleadings or correspondence sent to the Court.

You may discontinue your appeal at any time (s. 74).
