The criminal justice is exclusively the jurisdiction of the federal government. Although the federal government hold jurisdiction there continues to be a shared power between the federal government and 10 provincial governments. The provincial governments are responsible for the administration of justice. This gives them the power to enforce and prosecute laws.
