Diana Ginn, B.A., LL.B., LL.M.

Canada is a cultural mosaic, containing a broad range of different religious faiths and denominations. As spiritual organizations in a secular world, the religious institutions that support those faiths must also interact with the everyday world of law and legal obligation. Halsbury's Religious Institutions (2022 Reissue) examines the many points of intersection between law and religion in Canada, covering such topics as:

  • Freedom of religion under the Charter
  • Faith-based arbitration
  • Denominational schools
  • Consent to medical treatment
  • Property rights
  • Civil and criminal liability
  • Governance and legal status
  • Judicial review of decisions by religious institutions

Catherine Morin, B.Mus. (Hons.), LL.B.

Whether we travel on foot, by bicycle or by any other mode, as soon as we enter upon a road, we are affected by a complex web of common law decisions and legislation that shapes the privileges and responsibilities shared by road authorities and users alike. Halsbury's Roads, Highways and Bridges (2022 Reissue) is an invaluable resource to understand the issues surrounding the use of roads, including what constitutes a roadway or highway, restrictions on use, access to highways, ownership, opening and closing of highways, the duties of municipal and provincial/territorial authorities to maintain highways and sidewalks, liability for damages (including slips and falls), and remedies for damages. Topics covered include:

  • Ownership and jurisdiction over the roadways in Canada
  • The legislative and regulatory structure that governs roads, highways and bridges
  • The legal right to use roadways
  • Opening and closing of roadways
  • Issues relevant to the repair of roadways
  • Liability of users, owners and government
  • Available remedies, special notice provisions and limitations to actions
