  21. Legal System Canada has two legal systems that are very distinct:

  22. Contract Law A contract is an agreement that the law will enforce. In Canada, contract law is mostly “judge made”. None of the provinces except Quebec have fully codified their contract law into legislation. Instead, it derives from English common law and continues to evolve incrementally in judicial decisions.

  23. Validity of the Contract A contract may be validly created but could be considered invalid or unenforceable. The most common grounds for an invalid contract are: • Fraud • Duress • Gross unfairness • Undue influence • Illegality • Incapacity of the parties
