Canadian Business Corporations Law, 4th Edition provides comprehensive coverage and analysis on the gamut of Canadian corporate law topics. Written in plain and clear language, the text discusses corporate law in the context of thousands of specific cases.

The fourth edition of Kevin McGuinness's widely cited treatise on corporate law has been fully updated to take into account the significant legislative developments and expanded case law that has been handed down since the previous edition was published in 2017. The new edition sifts through the enormous body of new material in order to identify those cases that most significantly refine, expand or otherwise modify the law, and that therefore, have the most important precedential value.

For comparative purposes, a cross section of the most significant new case law from other important common law jurisdictions – particularly, the United States, United Kingdom and Australia – is included where Canadian law most closely resembles that of the jurisdiction concerned.

What’s New In Volume 1

  • New chapter on Corporate Governance and Corporate Social Responsibility
  • Up-to-date key legislative changes and case law since the last edition published in 2017
