The Definitive Guide to a Unique Corporate Law Statute

The Nova Scotia Companies Act (NSCA) is one of the oldest general incorporation statutes still used in Canada today. First enacted in 1900, it has been substantially amended only ten times, and is one of the few remaining examples of the traditional English memorandum system of incorporation in Canada. This unusual provenance has resulted in an incorporation statute that is uniquely flexible and has preserved business structures such as the unlimited liability company that have made Nova Scotia the incorporation jurisdiction of choice for many inter-provincial and international businesses in recent years.


In this publication the author Robert Miedema provides a comprehensive consolidation of Nova Scotia's business law and incorporation statutes, including the Nova Scotia Companies Act, the Nova Scotia Partnerships Act, the Societies Act, the Co-operative Associations Act, and the Community Interest Corporations Act, along with expert commentary explaining the key features of NSCA..


The First Book of Its Kind

The NSCA is not currently published commercially in Canada, often leaving corporate legal practitioners and students in Nova Scotia to use unwieldy, un-indexed and often out-dated internet printouts. This publication finally provides a useful reference resource, offering a legislative consolidation of the NSCA together with all related statues, regulations and Miedema's extensive commentary on such important topics as Nova Scotia's unlimited liability companies (ULCs).


Highlights of the 2018/2019 Edition:

  • The full text of the Community Interest Companies Act and the regulations made pursuant to that Act are now included, as enacted and in force
  • Updated discussion on the Community Interest Company and the legal structures that support social enterprise in Nova Scotia
  • Amendments reflecting changes in the accounting profession since the date of last publication
  • Amendments reflecting changes in the law of adult capacity and substitute decision-making
