Details and specs

This manual is the second edition of the Canada Corporation Manual, which was first published in 1950. The manual provides Canadian corporate law practitioners with a comprehensive and up-to-date toolkit including:

  • A narrative roadmap through the relevant statutes and regulations
  • Authoritative commentary on case law developments
  • Clear guidance on the technical aspects of federal corporate organization
  • Maintenance and transactions
  • A comprehensive collection of precedents, forms, and checklists

The title of the publication has been changed in this second edition from Canada Corporation Manual to Canada Business Corporations Manual to make it more readily identifiable as a book specifically dealing with business corporations, as opposed to federal non-share capital companies and similar not-for-profit corporations. With a new focus on business corporations, new chapters and subchapters have been added to round out the scope of the manual.

  • A new Chapter 1 is devoted to the historical evolution of business corporations in Canada
  • Chapter 2 considers the fundamental issue of the choice of business vehicle, which considers partnerships and trusts as alternatives to the corporation
  • Chapter 10 provides a comprehensive treatment of corporate criminal and civil liability
  • The material in Chapters 11, 12, and 13 dealing with directors and shareholders have been substantially augmented

Each chapter has been re-written to provide a more uniform and consistent style of presentation, as well as updating the forms, precedents and checklists.

Supplements invoiced separately.
