The process is very similar in both countries except that there is less jurisdictional variations in Canada.


Arrest in Canada

Arrest in the US


Site includes US Arraignment.

In Canada all Criminal Law is Federally legislated and all Civil Law Provincially Legislated which simplifies things. Each Province administrates the Courts in there own province. Appellate courts can be Federal.
