This indispensable reference guide, first published in 1997and now in its fourth edition, has been fully updated toreflect current, important changes in Canadian law. Every Canadian’s Guide to the Law unfolds in a clear, accessible “cradle-to-grave” format, addressing issues from fetal rights to human rights, from teen sexuality to marriage and divorce, from workplace issues to will and estate issues. Linda Silver Dranoff provides insight into the process of law and how it responds to changing social values, revealing how laws evolve over time and pointing to future trends.

The new edition addresses important legal developments, including significant changes to family law—from stricter rules against non-disclosure and non-payment to tough orders against parental alienation, from revised pension-sharing rules to the novelty of three or more support-paying parents for some children. This encyclopedic guide elucidates new rights for the self-employed, drastic changes to retirement rules, laws against identity theft, dramatic changes to criminal law sentencing and upgraded protections for children, and more. As the number of self-represented litigants continues to grow, the need for an easy-to-understand and comprehensive guide to Canadian law has never been greater.
