As I understand it, if you are applying to the regular LLM program at the University of Toronto (not the GPLLM), you can only take 'upper year' courses in the LLM Program.

Courses, including Foundations of Canadian Law, Constitutional, Contract, Criminal, Professional Responsibility, Property, and Torts are all lower year courses, according to U of T's website. Thus, you would NOT be allowed to take them for NCA requirements. But, if there is an upper-year course that you need to fulfill for NCA requirements, I believe it could count, if you get prior approval from the NCA first (as they require).

This information is only for regular LLM at University of Toronto. Not sure about the rest, but I think York has an LLM in Canadian Common Law, which is specifically designed to meet the NCA requirements.
