This practical reference contains everything required to get the right interpretation every time, including:
  • Full, consolidated texts of the federal Interpretation Act
  • Case summaries that illustrate how these statutes have been applied by the courts in interpreting other statutes, shedding light not just on interpretation legislation, but on a wide range of statutes and regulations, from penal statutes and labour legislation to rules of civil procedure and the taxing ordinances
  • Commentary discussing the operation of each section of the Acts reproduced
  • Index and table of cases

  • Detailed and expanded case annotations offer greater clarity on reasoning and outcome for each decision
  • Chronological listing of cases under each heading and subheading of the Act highlight key, recent changes
