Evidence is the means by which an allegation of fact is substantiated at a judicial proceed-
ing. It can be documentary, exhibitory, or oral. There are numerous rules surrounding the
submission of evidence, making it a particularly complicated and actively researched area
of the law. It is both federal and provincial in jurisdiction by way of the Canada Evidence Act,
numerous provincial evidence acts, the rules of court for the various courts of the country,
and evidentiary rules articulated in a variety of individual statutes. This topic lists works that
deal primarily or exclusively with evidence in the context of a civil proceeding. Related topics:

forme a aussi prévu des règles pour la preuve informatique.
