Chapter 26, Citizenship, covers immigration and citizenship, among other things. Chapter 32, Health, brings together the many constitutional issues that have arisen in the field of health care, including the constitutionality of the Canada Health Act and the issues of access by deaf people (Eldridge), coverage of autism therapy (Auton) and the problem of excessive waiting times in the public system (Chaoulli). Chapter 33, Social Security, covers unemployment insurance, old age pensions, workers' compensation and social assistance, all topics that have accumulated interesting constitutional decisions.
This edition includes all relevant Canadian constitutional legislation, as well as the American Bill of Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, a more complete and up-to-date bibliography, and an index that is accurate for the whole of this edition.
