Constitutional Law

Constitutional Law

Canada’s constitution is the supreme law of the country.  It sets out our system of government, the division of powers between the federal and provincial governments, our court system, fundamental legal principles and certain human rights and freedoms.

Canada’s constitution is partially written and partially unwritten.  It consists of legislation such as the Constitution Act and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, as well as common law rules developed by courts, unwritten constitutional principles and rules based upon custom and convention.  Any law that does not accord with the constitution will be declared invalid.
