What is the test for extending the time to appeal against a decision by the Court of Appeal?

Nova Scotia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Sandeson v. Nova Scotia (Attorney General), 2022 NSSC 15 (CanLII):

As clearly stated in these cases, the analysis is highly contextual, which ultimately requires exercising judicial discretion to extend the time to appeal in the interest of justice. The ultimate question is is whether justice requires that an extension be granted: Farrell v. Casavant, 2010 NSCA 71 at ¶ 17; Cummings v. Nova Scotia (Community Services), 2011 NSCA 2 at ¶ 19.
