Courts

The court’s role is to ensure the law is interpreted and applied consistently across B.C. and Canada based on the written law (legislation) and cases presented in court. Courts must also ensure people’s rights and freedoms are considered and they are treated fairly.

To learn more about the types of courts in B.C. see: types of courts.
