Some years ago the shahria court idea was proposed in Ontario, Canada. There was a huge outcry over this, to the point that the Premier was not only forced to say this would never happen in Ontario, but to then terminate all existing religion-based courts. This includes the jewish ones, which had operated for years.

I have been unable to find any news references to sharia courts in the other Canadian provinces.
