Fraud investigators engage in just about any type of investigation, including criminal or civil, and must always work within the limits of the law. Students are introduced to the rules of statutory, civil and criminal laws relevant to the conduct of forensic investigations. They gain an understanding of the Canadian legal systems and familiarize themselves with the rules of evidence, federal and provincial statutory, civil, and common law systems, the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the court systems in Canada, and the Canadian criminal code and criminal justice system. They explore differences between direct and circumstantial evidence.
