Now, together in one volume for the very first time, are five closely related and complementary Halsbury's titles – Environment, Hunting and Fishing, Mines and Minerals, Oil and Gas, and Public Utilities. An invaluable resource, this volume thoroughly covers every facet of the legal framework governing natural resources.



Environment (2013 Reissue)
Alastair R. Lucas, B.A., LL.B., LL.M.

Climate change. Environmental toxins. Ozone depletion. Mass extinctions and species at risk. The growing recognition of the fragility of the world's ecosystems, and the growing emphasis placed on sustainable development and responsible resource management has placed the environment at the forefront of Canada's social, political and, inevitably, legal agenda. The reach of environmental laws can now extend into everyday commercial transactions, corporate takeovers, real estate development, and criminal prosecution – virtually every area of legal practice. Newly revised and thoroughly updated, the Halsbury's Environment title provides a clear and straightforward understanding of the maze of laws, regulations and legal issues that frame the subject area of environmental law.



Hunting and Fishing (2013 Reissue)
Jay Brecher, B.A., LL.B.


According to government surveys, over six million Canadians have taken part in recreational fishing, and in hunting and trapping, making these activities a surprisingly significant part of the national commerce and culture. They are also activities that are strictly controlled by federal and provincial law, with criminal and quasi-criminal consequences arising from violation of the rules. Newly revised, the Halsbury's Hunting and Fishing title provides clear insight into this unique corner of Canadian law, and offers a concise description of the relevant regulatory framework that governs fishing and the hunting of wildlife.


Mines and Minerals
Catherine Morin, B.Mus. (Hons.), LL.B.

Mining is one of Canada's most important economic sectors, contributing over $32 billion to the gross domestic product (GDP), employing over 300,000 workers and accounting for 19% of Canadian goods exports. Halsbury's Mines and Minerals title elegantly and succinctly summarizes the law governing mineral rights and mining operations in Canada for anyone seeking a basic grounding in the area.


Oil and Gas (2013 Reissue)
Michael A. Thackray, B.Sc., LL.B. Q.C.

The energy sector continues to be perhaps the major influence on both Canadian economic growth and national policy. From a legal perspective, the law governing oil and gas is diverse, and drawn from a wide variety of traditional legal disciplines, including torts, administrative law, contracts, securities, trusts, environmental law, commercial law, criminal law, and real property law. Written by one of Canada's most respected energy sector lawyers, the Oil and Gas title provides a concise, organized and informed narrative of the law that governs the ownership of, access to, and extraction of oil and natural gas in Canada.


Public Utilities
Sheila Nemet-Brown, B.A. (Hons.), LL.B.

Halsbury's Public Utilities title discusses the legal aspects of regulation of public utilities, focusing on provincial regulation of electricity, natural gas, pipelines and water utilities. The legislative context is comprehensively addressed, having regard to the local, provincial, federal and international aspects of the topic. In addition, issues in relation to proceedings before provincial public utilities boards and commissions are examined, including all relevant procedural aspects.
