Criminal Justice - Legal

Criminal justice in Canada is handled at the federal level - meaning the Criminal Code of Canada sets out laws that apply to all Canadians. Criminal offenses are either indictable - where the law broken is a serious one, such as break and enter, drug trafficking, or murder. In these cases, the defendant (person charged with the crime) has the right to a trial by Jury. Less serious offenses are called summary convictions, such as causing a disturbance, and are punishable by shorter sentences or smaller fines. These cases are handled in court by a judge and do not go to trial with a jury. If you have general questions regarding what is included in the Criminal Code of Canada, would like legal information or assistance, or are looking for resources regarding indictable or summary offenses in Canada, we have what you are looking for. You are not alone. Connect with others who may be going through the same thing, find professional help and resources near you. The Kinjunxion community is here to help.
