The Provincial Court hears matters under a wide variety of federal and provincial laws (also called “statutes”) enacted by the Parliament of Canada and the British Columbia Legislature, including those listed here. These laws either give powers to the Provincial Court exclusively or to both trial courts concurrently. Provincial Court judges and judicial justices must also apply “common law” precedents (applicable decisions of the British Columbia Supreme Court, Court of Appeal, and the Supreme Court of Canada in similar cases).
