Criminal Law Resources

Canadian criminal law is codified under an Act of Federal Parliament called the Criminal Code:

The 1867 Constitution Act divides the authority to make criminal laws and the authority to investigate and prosecute crimes. Section 91(27) authorizes the federal government to create legislation in relation to criminal law. And section 92(14) authorizes the provincial and territorial governments to investigate and prosecute criminal offences in their courts, which are created by their respective provincial court acts.
