The CRT publishes all its default and final decisions. This is required by the Civil Resolution Tribunal Act, and it also helps people better understand how the CRT decides disputes.
Decisions are available on the Decisions page of our website. Anyone can search for and read CRT decisions.
Browsing and searching
The search engine can help you find specific decisions. Use the “Advanced Search” boxes to search for all decisions that include a name, date, specific word or phrase, and more.
You can also view all decisions of a specific dispute type, such as strata or small claims. Simply select a decision type from the “Browse Decisions” list:
You can also search for decisions flagged as “Noteworthy”.
The CRT or individual tribunal members sometimes flag a decision as noteworthy. Noteworthy decisions are particularly well-written, concise, summarize the law well, and/or address a particularly difficult issue.
Like all CRT decisions, decisions identified as “noteworthy” are not precedent-setting, and are not binding on CRT members when they make decisions.
To find noteworthy decisions, click “Advanced Search” and select “Show more fields”. Click the “Noteworthy Decisions?” field and select “Yes”. Then click the “Search” button.
