Governance of the legal profession in Canada is a matter of provincial and territorial responsibility. However, within the last 10 years, Canada’s law societies have broken down interprovincial barriers so that members of the profession are able to easily transfer from one jurisdiction to another. With national mobility, Canada’s law societies have moved to adopt consistent rules and practices to ensure that the public is served by members of the legal profession who are held to the same high level of competence and ethics, wherever they practice in Canada.
