Understanding Canadian laws and rights


The Canadian legal system is complex, due to the need to accommodate two languages and address both common and civil legal traditions. In general, Canadian law is based on the British common law system, but within the province of Quebec, civil disputes are handled with a civil law system that is more proscriptive and permits less flexibility to individual judges to make decisions based on the unique details of each case. This means that Canada is a bijural country, with two different types of law. In criminal disputes, common law is used throughout the country.


Canada also has a multi-tiered court system that handles federal, provincial and municipal laws. If you are involved in a situation involving the Canadian legal system, it's a good idea to have the assistance of a Canadian lawyer to help you make sense of Canadian laws and rights.


It can be difficult and expensive to meet with an international lawyer to have your questions answered, though, so a Canadian law expert on JustAnswer may be able to provide you with the information you need to decide how to proceed with your situation.

I recently made a purchase through an online auction. The product that I bought is not the quality that it was made to seem on the photos on their website. However, I realized after the purchase that there were terms on the product page stating that "No sale shall be invalidated by any reason or defect or inaccuracy of description in catalogue or otherwise, and no liability shall be borne by the auctioneers by virtue of any such fault or error. All sales final" I'm wondering if there is a way to get my money back I have contacted the seller and they advised that they stand by their description of the product, which was vague, but not inaccurate. The photos of the product showed tags with product information and retail prices that lead me to believe they were of a certain quality. … read more
