Criminal Law

Criminal Law in Canada is under the jurisdiction of the federal government which allows this branch of government to enact laws.  The main purpose of the criminal law is to set forth the punishment for criminal offenses. In Canada, most criminal laws can be found under the Criminal Code of Canada, the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act and the Youth Criminal Justice Act.  Provinces are given the power to “administer” the justice system by enforcing and prosecuting these laws.  Administration of justice and penal matters are under provincial jurisdiction through provincial and municipal police forces.
