This contribution reviews the Constitutional Cases issued by the Supreme Court in 2015. The analysis is divided into three parts. In the first part, as in previous years, I begin with an analysis of the year as a whole, identifying noteworthy statistics or trends. In the second part, I explore some specific Constitutional decisions of the Court – especially those revealing important divergences on the Court around the scope and reach of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the premise of Federalism – in greater detail. I conclude, in the third part, with a discussion of the evolving composition of the Court, and the significance of the departure of Justice Rothstein, together with the arrival of Justices Côté and Brown.
