arturking The Canadian legal system has its foundation in the English common law system, inherited from being a former colony of the United Kingdom and later a Commonwealth Realm member of the Commonwealth of Nations. The legal system is bi-jurisdictional, as the responsibilities of public includes criminal and private law are separated and exercised exclusively by Parliament and the provinces respectively.
