New in this edition

This edition starts with an overview of the development of tort law and of the legal system that administers the law, and takes the reader through the basic principles of Canadian tort law.  The authors clearly explain how the law of torts applies in practice, specifically addressing such issues as:

  • Levels of Guilty Mentality
  • Intentional Torts
  • Business Torts
  • Negligence and Proof of Negligence
  • Defences to Negligence
  • Special Categories of Negligence (including Occupier’s Liability, Product Liability, Professional Liability, and Crown Liability)
  • Strict Liability
  • Vicarious Liability
  • Damages in Tort

Since the last edition, the law of torts in Canada has continued to develop and evolve. This fifth edition features new commentary on areas of law  that have been the focus of judicial attention, including developments in privacy-related torts, the liability of public authorities, causation, the tort of “unlawful means,” third-party and vicarious liability, and professional negligence.
