Homicide includes First and Second degree murder, manslaughter, and criminal negligence causing death. These are among the most serious crimes individuals can be charged with in Canada.
First degree murder carries with it a mandatory life sentence, with no chance of parole for 25 years. Second degree murder also carries a mandatory life sentence, with no chance of parole for 10-25 years, depending on the facts of the case and on the offender.
