oa Comparative and International Law Journal of Southern Africa - Procedural fairness in relation to administrative decisions: recent trends in Canadian law

Volume 14, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0010-4051



The purpose of this article is to survey contemporary trends in Canada regarding the concept of fairness, with particular reference to its rationale and scope, the different connotations of fairness in the context of administrative decisions and the relationship between the emergent doctrine and the traditional rules of natural justice in the light of current judicial attitudes. Possible approaches to the problems which remain are assessed, drawing on the experience of other Commonwealth jurisdictions, and some tentative conclusions are offered as to the policy famework of modern Canadian law on the basis of the decided cases.
