Product Description

Québec was the first Canadian province to adopt class actions as a legal procedure, and while the other provinces have followed Québec's lead, class actions in that jurisdiction remain unique as they are largely conditioned by the tenets of civil law, not common law. The Québec Class Action: A Roadmap, 2nd Edition is a useful primer that will enable in-house counsel and practitioners both inside and outside of Canada to navigate Québec's complex class action system with greater confidence and ease.

Up-To-Date, Comprehensive Content
Edited by Shaun E. Finn, an experienced commercial litigator at BCF with proven experience in the area of class actions, The Québec Class Action: A Roadmap, 2nd Edition offers readers valuable insights and practical, real-world guidance. In particular, this text features:

  • Significant changes in case law since the publication of the first edition in 2016
  • The most current information, including recent revisions to Québec's Code of Civil Procedure and its impact on class action proceedings
  • An analysis of the substantive issues related to class actions as well as the statutory law
  • A review of the various stages of a class action, from the application for authorization, to trial, and final judgment
  • A cheat sheet and procedural roadmap to help readers navigate the class action process
  • An easy-to-follow format that makes looking up relevant rules and case law fast and easy
