In Canada have we adopted the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC)

Resolved Question:

In Canada have we adopted the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) in whole or substantially? Rather than openly calling this new law Admiralty/Maritime Jurisdiction, it is called Statutory Jurisdiction?

No. Canada has not adopted the UCC. The UCC is purely United States law (and actually not fully adopted in the United States nor is it necessarily consistent state-by-state). The UCC was drafted uniformly but, because it is not federal law, its application had to be approved by each state individually and most states have made "adjustments" or "improvements" to the Code.

Some of the commercial rules in Canada that pertain to Contracts do mirror UCC provisions but they are different.
