1. Laws are rules made by government that forbid certain actions and are enforced by the courts. Laws apply to everyone equally. If you break a law, you may have to pay a fine, pay for the damage you have done, or go to jail. Imagine the chaos – and the danger – if there were no laws. The strongest people would be in control and people would live in fear. Drivers could choose which side of the street to drive on and no one could stop them. Imagine trying to buy and sell goods if no one had to keep promises. Or trying to hold onto your personal property or even to keep yourself safe if there were no laws against robbery or assault. Even in a well-ordered society, people disagree, and conflicts arise. The law provides a way to resolve disputes peacefully. If two people claim the same piece of property, rather than fight they turn to the law. The courts can decide who the real owner is and how to protect the owner's rights. Laws help to ensure a safe and peaceful society. The Canadian leg...

1. The popular notion of property as something owned, encourages the idea of property rights as absolute. However, property in the legal sense is more accurately regarded as the combination of the legal rights of individuals with respect to objects, and the obligations owed them by others and guaranteed and protected by government. Property is either classified as private property owned by one or more individuals, or public property owned by government. Property law is also classified under common law as real or personal. Real property (or realty) is land, any buildings on that land, any mineral rights under the land, and anything that is attached to the land or buildings that can be considered permanent. Personal property (sometimes known as chattels) includes any property that is not real property.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can i find canadian laws and regulations for free?

The Canadian Legal Information Institute (CanLII) offers free access to federal laws and regulations, as well as those of certain provinces, including Quebec. The Centre d’accès à l’information juridique (CAIJ – Centre for Access to Legal Information) offers free access to federal and provincial laws and regulations, as well as municipal bylaws.

What are the basic laws in canada?

Canadian laws recognize and protect basic rights and freedoms, such as liberty and equality. Law can be divided into public and private law. Public laws set the rules for the relationship between a person and society and for the roles of different levels of government.

What is the difference between federal and provincial common law in canada?

In other words, there is no distinction in Canada between federal and provincial common law, and the Supreme Court can and does dictate common law directly to the provinces on all matters traditionally encompassed by common law (to the extent not superseded by legislation).

Is there a law against price gouging in canada?

In Canada, competition law does not explicitly address excessive pricing. 1 Accordingly, recourse for "price gouging" has been left to provincial consumer protection laws and now, emergency response legislation. Prior to the COVID-19 crisis, three provinces – British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan – had explicit laws against price gouging.
