In 1984 Le Dain was appointed to the Supreme Court of Canada. In November 1988, he resigned from the bench after hospitalization for depression, presumably from overwork. A 2017 CBC Radio documentary claimed that Le Dain resigned under pressure from the chief justice, Brian Dickson, due to the view at the time that a person suffering from depression could not fulfill the role of a justice. Former justice Claire L’Heureux-Dubé said of the situation: “Justice Le Dain, being an exceptional mind and very great for the court, should have been given the time to get back healthy. And we thought that wouldn’t be that long. Being forced to resign in such a position, it must have been terrible.”
In 1976, he received an honorary doctorate from Concordia University. In 1989, he was made a Companion of the Order of Canada.
He was dean of Osgoode Hall Law School from 1967 to 1972.
