In Canada, the Constitution is the supreme law of the land. This constitutional supremacy means that it plays an important role in shaping other government policy as well as laws and regulations. This section will serve as an introduction to the Canadian Constitution and highlight its connections with environmental law.
This is a introductory piece which will help students to gain a background to environmental law more specifically. It may be a good place to spend some time before diving into the more topical issues.
