Overview of Canadian Military Law and Courts Martial


This overview is divided into four parts. Part 1 discusses the sources and scope of Canadian military law while Part 2 addresses the applicability of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms to Canadian military law. Part 3 then provides a description of the types of Canadian courts martial and their statutorily defined jurisdictions, compositions and powers of punishment. The rights of appeal provided to those subject to Canadian military law under the National Defence Act are subsequently outlined in Part 4.

This overview is based on a survey of the relevant legislation. It is not of course intended to be an authoritative statement of the law and is provided only as general background information.
