An Open Visual Course to Better Understand Canada’s Legislative and Regulatory System
Meet the people who draft our laws and regulations, and gain a better understanding of the legislative and regulatory process in Canada. This innovative, Open Online Visual Course takes a documentary-inspired approach to communicating the subject matter, relying on video vignettes where you can hear from legal experts. The program is enriched with interactive infographics presenting key concepts, complementary texts and hyperlinks to relevant and accessible resources.
As you work your way through the modules, you’ll gain a better understanding of Canada’s legislative and regulatory processes, especially those of the federal government. You’ll understand the origin of bills and regulations, their typology and the various stages leading to their adoption. You’ll also be able to identify the public organizations, political players and other stakeholders involved in the legislative and regulatory processes, and explain their functions and responsibilities.
