An Introduction to Canadian Legal Information & Lawyers' Web Sites

Our mission is to help you find basic reliable information and web sources for Canada's legal-courts-lawyers services, by province and major cities.

Canada's Justice System

See the Federal Department of Justice overview, at canada.justice.gc.ca/eng - (English version)
canada.justice.gc.ca/fra - (Français ver.)
The site covers topics including:  What is the law?  Sources of Canadian law.  The Law in Action.  The citizen and the law (e.g. jury duty, testifying in court, knowing the law)

"The law affects Canadians every day.  There are, we know, laws against crimes such as robbery or murder. But there are also laws that apply to us when we pursue everyday activities, such as driving a car, renting an apartment, getting a job or getting married. In fact, there are laws concerning almost every aspect of our daily lives.

Many people believe that our laws are too difficult to be understood, except by lawyers. It is true that in a complex world the laws can be lengthy and technical. If a person needs help in understanding how the law applies to a specific problem, he or she can always consult a lawyer. But the fundamentals of Canadian law are based on common sense. These ideas and principles concern every Canadian and are something every Canadian should strive to understand. What is the "law"?  Where does it come from?  What is it for? How does it operate?
