Abstract:This study examines perceptions of the Canadian legal system among Bangladeshi immigrants in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Previous studies provide information on perceptions of victims, offenders, or police. However, Little attempt has been made in analyzing the perception of the legal system in Canada among immigrants in general. It is also true that no attempt has been made to study Bangladeshi immigrants' perceptions of the legal system of Canada. Legal pluralism provides a conceptual framework to analyze these perceptions in this study. Qualitative in-depth interviews are used to understand immigrants' perceptions of the legal system. Interviewees are selected through purposive and snowball sampling. Study findings show that participants are aware that immigrants should have an understanding of the legal system of Canada to abide by the laws of the country. Participants put emphasis on the government's role in dissemination of information of the legal system of Canada to the immigrants. Findings also indicate some mixed perceptions in regard to racial discrimination by police in Canada. Coexistence of dual legal practices, combining the Sharia law and the Canadian law, is revealed in the study. Study participants further express their mixed views on the practice of official and unofficial forms of ordering in resolving disputes in their daily life. This study also provides recommendations on some policy implications and on future research.
