Abstract

In an increasingly litigious society, records and archives frequently become evidence in court. What are the criteria for admitting records in court as evidence, and how might records keepers be called upon to testify in court? These matters will be discussed in the context of federal and provincial law.

The author's comments are directed towards these two central issues: The criteria for admitting records in court as evidence, and the status of records keepers called upon to testify in court.

Keywords: Court records, Law of evidence
