Occupations and Trades
Ronald J. Maddock, LL.B.
In addition to the fields of health care and law, provinces routinely regulate the operation of several important professions - professions that routinely interact with lawyers and their clients. Accountants, architects, engineers, land surveyors and others play important roles in many legal files, and issues of qualification, misconduct and discipline readily arise. The provinces also control entry into many skilled trades, and have established programs allowing qualified trades people to practise their trade in any province or territory without having to obtain additional qualifications. Halsbury's Occupations and Trades title offers a straightforward description of the operation and responsibilities of these key self-governing or regulated professions, and of the rules governing entry into, and practice of, various certified trades in Canada. It serves as an excellent first reference for anyone seeking a clear understanding of the rules that impact these groups.

Pensions have been one of the many casualties of a struggling North American economy. Cash-poor corporations concerned about the financial burden have introduced significant changes to their pension plans, while employees try to understand their rights and entitlements.
In an area that is heavily regulated and often impacted by emerging case law, the Pensions section is indispensable for lawyers practising pension law, labour and employment law, and any practice area where pension questions emerge. This resource precisely details applicable federal and provincial legislation across Canada which provides the logistics of pension plans, including their administration, investment, termination and regulation and the calculation of individual pensions owing.
Specific topics in this essential national reference include:
