Canada - Laws


Recommended Posts

In Canada jurisdiction to regulate commercial transactions is divided between the federal and the provincial governments, so commercial lawyers must be familiar with federal as well as provincial laws. A further complication arises because the commercial law of Québec is or was derived from the CIVIL CODE of France while the commercial law of the English-speaking provinces is largely based on English law. At both the provincial and federal levels the relevant rules of many of the principal branches of commercial law have been reduced to statutory form. Thus, all English-speaking provinces have a substantially identical Sale of Goods Act while the Bills of Exchange Act, the Bank Act, the Carriage of Goods by Sea Act and the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act codify all or a substantial part of the areas of commercial law under federal jurisdiction.
