But in some regions of Canada like Ontario, aspiring paralegals can take a paralegal course to obtain a license from the Law Society of Upper Canada which gives them an opportunity to work independently. Similar to lawyers, paralegals also need to get license in Canada for individual profession. They may also act as agents to the clients for dealing with certain legal matters.
Canada's legal system is based on the British common law system except Quebec which follows the French civil law system for private issues. Though Canada's courts are considered to be independent of the government, the legal system is subject to Canada's Constitution. The court searches for existing laws under common law first and later it looks for preference. Since 1996, for the Aboriginal people there is a separate court system called as Aboriginal Justice Strategy (AJS).
