Searchable Database of Decisions of the Courts of Nova Scotia

Welcome to The Nova Scotia Courts’ Decision Database
This collection contains most of the Nova Scotia Courts’ written decisions released publicly since 2003. The collection is updated daily.

Please note that many court decisions are oral decisions, not released in writing, and therefore are not added to this database.

Effective immediately and until further notice, the daily decisions email for those who have subscribed to this service will not be available. We are experiencing technical issues and working to address the issue as soon as possible.

In the meantime, subscribers and other members of the public can access the published decisions of the Nova Scotia Courts in our online decisions database or by following the Nova Scotia Court on X (Twitter) here. We regret the inconvenience and thank you for your patience!
