In its objective of creating an open-content resource, the Canadian Criminal Law Notebook contains many articles on a vast array of criminal law-related topics.

  • Some of the Canadian Criminal Law Notebook articles discuss words or language that are considered profane, vulgar, or offensive by some readers.
  • Articles may contain frank discussion of controversial topics. Some subjects that are discussed have criminal applications in some jurisdictions. Others contain information on dangerous or otherwise risky activities (see Canadian_Criminal_Law_Notebook:General disclaimer and Canadian_Criminal_Law_Notebook:Risk_disclaimer).
  • The Canadian Criminal Law Notebook may contain triggers for people with post-traumatic stress disorder.
  • There may be medical, legal, or other information that is normally also the subject of professional opinions; the Canadian Criminal Law Notebook is not a substitute for seeking the help of a professional. Please note: The Canadian Criminal Law Notebook does not give legal advice or medical advice.

The Canadian Criminal Law Notebook's current policy is to include such content, provided it breaches neither any of our existing policies nor the laws of Canada, where the Canadian Criminal Law Notebook is hosted. Some of these articles may contain warnings, but many do not.

In any case, the Canadian Criminal Law Notebook is a work in progress, and may contain errors, bias, or duplication. We encourage readers to help identify these problems. The some articles are not written by a person who is not necessarily a subject-matter expert, and may lack academic or professional credentials in the area.
