Legal Dualism and Bilingual Bisystemism

In 2005, the Department of Justice adopted an action plan establishing a two-part mandate for the Legal Dualism Team:

  1. one part that consists in research on the role of bilingual bisystemism as a phenomenon linked to the coexistence of civil law and common law systems in Canadian private law and to the existence of two official languages in Canada, French and English;
  2. one another part that consists in promotion, achieved by developing and publishing the Legal Dictionary of Property in Canada-Dictionnaire juridique de la propriété au Canada (LDPC-DJPC) online, conducting additional studies, and reporting on multidisciplinary publications and events (conferences, training sessions, etc.) concerning the progress of legal dualism in Canada.
