Law and Legislation: Provincial & Federal

Canadian Constitution

The Canadian Constitution divides areas of activity between the federal and provincial government. Some of these areas are exclusive, i.e. the postal service is a federal area of activity, while education is a provincial matter. Some areas overlap, so that both levels of government may make laws and policies, i.e. the environment.

You need to determine whether the laws that deal with your legal problem are federal or provincial.
