Nova Scotia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Kairos Community Development Ltd. v. Nova Scotia (Community Services), 2007 NSSC 330 (CanLII):

The onus is on the party seeking production to establish that it is relevant. Matthews, J.A. said in Upham v. You, supra, (p. 3): The respondent must demonstrate that it is relevant.

As the court said in Crosby v. Fisher [2002] N.S.J. No. 121, (S.C.) in para. 4: 4 ... The onus of establishing relevance is on the party seeking production. That is the first onus.
