In Canada, a former colony of Great Britain, the legal system is based on British common law, except in Quebec where for historical reasons civil law is still used for issues of private law. Both legal systems are governed by the Constitution, the supreme law of Canada. All laws that are passed must be aligned with the Constitution in order to be valid. For an in-depth article on the legal system in Canada, visit the entry in Wikipedia.
