DOJ Canada vs DOJ (Canada)[edit]

I had changed the article name to Department of Justice Canada from Department of Justice (Canada). However, seeing some discussion about it from a year ago I decided to change it back for safe. Still, I'm curious what is the reason for naming it "Department of Justice" over "Departement of Justice Canada"? I've read a number of more recent documents by and about the department of justice and they all refer to it as "Department of Justice Canada". It appears to be a frequently used title. Any insight, anyone? --PullUpYourSocks 23:39, 10 August 2006 (UTC)

The legal name for the DOJ is the Department of Justice. The applied name is Department of Justice Canada, sometimes shortened to Justice Canada. Information on this can be found on the Treasury Board website at http://www.tbs-sct.gc.ca/pubs_pol/sipubs/tb_fip/titlesoffedorg1-eng.asp.
