How is the Canadian legal system structured?

    Canada’s legal system is based on the principles of English common law and French civil law, reflecting the country’s dual legal heritage. The system is organized hierarchically, with provincial and territorial courts at the lowest level and federal and provincial/territorial courts of appeal at higher levels. The Supreme Court of Canada is the highest court, responsible for interpreting the Constitution and ensuring the consistency of legal decisions across the country.
