This research aims to develop the project entitled "Drugs in Criminology and Criminal Justice of Canada" at the University of Ottawa, in the Department of Criminology Faculty of Social Sciences. The objective is to achieve a deeper theoretical and methodological framework of the doctoral research conducted in the Department of Sociology at the University of São Paulo/FAPESP titled "Drug Trafficking and Administration of Criminal Justice: an analysis of cases in the city of São Paulo" -through the systematization and analysis of a variety of contemporary international literature produced on the topic of drugs, punishment and criminal justice, with an emphasis on criminological literature produced in Canada, which is a center of excellence in this area of social sciences.
