The Canadian Constitution divides subject areas into the responsibility of the either the federal or the provincial government. For example, the federal government regulates criminal matters with the laws in the Criminal Code. Provincial law regulates driving on highways and roads with the Highway Traffic Act. In addition, cities and municipalities can enact by-laws if they are given the authority to do so by the province, which may cover local matters such as property zoning.
