What is Judicial Review

Judicial Review is a mechanism by which the Federal Court can review the actions or decisions of the CRA. The purpose of judicial review is to ensure the CRA has complied with the law in reaching its decision.

An application for Judicial Review is not an opportunity to re-argue your case before the Federal Court. This is the proper jurisdiction of the Tax Court of Canada. Rather, Judicial Review is a unique method that allows the Federal Court to review the actions or decisions of the CRA and determine whether the CRA was reasonable or correct its application of the Income Tax Act. It is a means to hold the CRA accountable to the government. It is a means for the Federal Court to scrutinize CRA actions and punish it for behaviour that runs afoul of the law or behaviour that offends natural justice.

These types of behaviours can include aggressive behaviours of the CRA without lawful basis, the CRA’s refusal to consider proper evidence, the CRA’s refusal to lawfully open an objection to an assessment, and the CRA’s improper decision rendered against you.
