Supreme Court Decision a Victory for Religious Autonomy

Supreme Court Decision a Victory for Religious Autonomy

In a unanimous decision, released today, the Supreme Court of Canada (SCC) has affirmed that church membership decisions cannot be judicially reviewed by civil courts except in very narrow circumstances. The Court stated: “In the end, religious groups are free to determine their own membership and rules; courts will not intervene in such matters save where it is necessary to resolve an underlying legal dispute” and that “even where review is available, the courts will consider only those issues that are justiciable. Issues of theology are not justiciable.”
