You Can't Do That In Canada. Or Can You?

There are quirky laws around the world. They make you wonder what politicians were thinking when they voted yes. Canada is no exception.

And due to be legalized nationally next year.

This quiz offers you a glimpse into the Canadian legal psyche. It’s up to you to discern truth from fiction or place the weird regulation in the correct region of this sweeping Northern land. The main question to ask yourself is, can you do that in Canada, or can't you? Good luck, eh?

Did you know?

Official Languages Act

An important Canadian law is the Official Languages Act (or, in French, Loi sur les langues officielles), which gives French and English equal status throughout the nation. The law came into force in 1969 to confirm language rights and privileges across Canada. Still, as early as 1867, the year of Confederation, both languages could be used in debates in Canada’s Parliament. The law, though, is only enforceable at the federal level and cannot be applied to provincial or municipal governments or businesses. Each province or territory has its own right to adopt individual policies protecting languages. In fact, British Columbia, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island are unilingual English. Quebec has French as its majority language, but bilingualism is recognized. Only Nunavut adds additional languages into the mix with Inuktitut and Inuinnaqtun officially recognized in this part of the country divided from the Northwest Territories in 1999.
