In this course students examine legislation and procedures commonly enforced by police officers relating to quasi-criminal offences found within Ontario Provincial Statutes. Students begin their studies by examining the Provincial Offences Act, which governs all Provincial prosecutions, and then delve into the various provincial statutes, such as Trespass to Property Act, Liquor License Act, Child and Family Services Act and the Family Law Act. In addition, students expand their capacities to analyze and apply their knowledge of correct legislation and authorities in a professional manner to case-based scenarios.
