This acclaimed academic work introduces readers to the foundations of trust law and provides an up-to-date exposition and analysis of the legislation and case law that have shaped the Canadian trust landscape.

Insightful content

Now in its third edition, Trusts in Common-Law Canada has been significantly updated to reflect the current state of the law, with revisions specifically made to the sections devoted to the introduction and theory of trusts, creating an effective express trust and vesting the trust property, certainty of intention for a trust, and testamentary trust instruments and variations.

This book is prepared logically and written in an accessible and easy-to-understand way: as a result, readers can intuitively grasp complex concepts, doctrines and principles. Careful consideration has been given to the reorganization of sections and chapters to facilitate the reader's learning process.

Perhaps most valuable are the teaching tools included in every section:

  • Learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter identify the concepts and information the reader can expect to learn
  • Learning outcomes at the end of each chapter summarize key learning points
  • Self-assessment questions at the end of each chapter allow readers to test their knowledge of the material
