The prospect of civil litigation hangs over virtually every legal file, making an understanding of the rules and procedures that govern actions in the superior courts a basic tool for lawyers in any field of practice. And, with greater mobility and the routine extension of contemporary business operations beyond traditional borders, it's not enough to limit that understanding to just a single province or territory.

Thoroughly revised and newly consolidated into a single volume, this title is the starting place for effective research on questions relating to civil practice and procedure in Canada. Covering the rules of practice in every jurisdiction, Civil Procedure (2017 Reissue) outline the framework for civil litigation in courts across Canada. Organized on a topical basis, it is an especially useful resource for users who do not specialize in civil litigation, and for practitioners who seek a convenient insight into practice in other Canadian jurisdictions.
