History of the Court

In May 1871 the legislature of Manitoba enacted The Supreme Court Act to establish a superior court with original and appellate jurisdiction in the province The law provided:

There shall be constituted a Court of Justice for the Province of Manitoba, to be styled "The Supreme

Court," which shall have jurisdiction over ail matters of Law and Equity, ail matters of wills and intestacy, and shall possess such powers and authorities in relation to matters of Local or Provincial jurisdiction,

as in England are distributed among the Superior Courts of Law and Equity, and of Probate

The Act also established inferior courts known as Petty Sessions

In 1872, The Supreme Court Act was amended by the Manitoba legislature to change the name of the court to "The Court of Queen's Bench" The first Chief Justice was appointed in July 1872 In the same year, the Petty Sessions were abolished and County Courts were established

The appellate jurisdiction of the Court of Queen's Bench was transferred to the Manitoba Court of Appeal, which was established in 1906 In 1984, the County Courts were merged with the Court of Queen's Bench, and the judges of the County Courts became Court of Queen's Bench judges Further, in 1984 the Family Division of the Court of Queen’s Bench was established
