Details and specs

This seminal classic of Canadian legal literature has been completely revised and updated by an author team drawn from the front ranks of the profession nation-wide.

In keeping with the original, the sixth edition of Widdifield on Executors and Trustees offers a comprehensive exposition of the law relating to the exercise of the duties and prerogatives of the executor or trustee in Canadian law.

Each of the 17 original chapters has been brought up-to-date with case law and legislation from all jurisdictions to provide a national perspective. To reflect the development of the law in this area since the previous edition, a new chapter focusing on the impact of family law upon the administration of estates has been added.

Now offered in looseleaf format to ensure its continuing currency, the sixth edition of Widdifield on Executors and Trustees continues the tradition of excellence established by its predecessors.

A portion is dedicated to briefly cover limitations statutes:

  • Limitations Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. L.15, ss. 43, 45(1)(g)
  • Estates Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. E.21, s. 47
  • Estates Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. E.21, ss. 44, 45
  • Trustee Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. T.23, s. 38(3)
