Details and specs:

This reference focuses on the legal remedies available to, and the protection of, persons in vulnerable circumstances and conditions, in the common law provinces across Canada.


Organized primarily by type of vulnerability, this work focuses on each of the following four types: (1) youths who fall outside the scope of child protection laws and adults who suffered childhood abuse; (2) spouses; (3) the elderly; and (4) medical patients and persons with disabilities. For each type, this service shifts from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, setting out the governing legislation followed by an exhaustive summary of relevant case law and explanatory commentary. This excellent research tool juxtaposes the law of a particular province with those of others, and provides insight that assists in legislative interpretation and in argument preparation. This work also provides convenient navigation tools, including tables of contents and cases, and a detailed topical index. Download brochure and order form
