Cemeteries and Interment (2018 Reissue)
Sheila Nemet-Brown, B.A. (Hons.), LL.B.

Death is a mystery that often baffles and intimidates us all, but the law in regard to it need not. Halsbury's® Cemeteries and Interment (2018 Reissue) volume provides a clear and straightforward explanation of the legal aspects of death and burial, from the issuance of a death certificate to exhumation of a body and a discussion of the business regulation of funeral homes and cemeteries. Topics covered include:

  • The regulatory framework for reporting and registering death
  • Requirements for dealing with and disposing of human remains and corpses
  • The law governing embalming and funeral home services
  • The law governing the operation and business of cemeteries
  • Statutory and criminal offences in relation to corpses and interment

Charities, Associations and Not-For-Profit Organizations (2018 Reissue)
Donald J. Bourgeois, B.A. (Hons.), LL.B.

Charity begins at home and quickly makes its way into Canada's boardrooms, schools, religious institutions and, eventually, law offices. As charitable and not-for-profit organizations become increasingly important vehicles for driving social support services and community goals, lawyers are likewise increasingly called upon to be able to offer an informed explanation about a variety of charitable issues to clients.

Halsbury's Charities, Associations and Not-For-Profit Organizations (2018 Reissue) volume is the ideal Canadian charity law reference for everyone for whom charitable and not-for-profit law is not a day-to-day area of expertise. It puts this important area into clear focus, systematically explains the structure of the non-profit field and outlines the duties, liabilities and logistics connected with this area of law. Among the important topics covered are the following:

  • What constitutes a charitable purpose?
  • Division of powers in regard to charitable endeavours
  • The various organizational structures utilized for charities, associations and non-profit groups
  • Cy-près doctrine and fundamental change
  • The role and duties of directors and officers
  • Procedural and statutory rights of members
  • Finances
  • Supervision and oversight of charities
  • Fundraising rules
  • Income Tax Act considerations and requirements
