The new 5th edition of Constitutional Law of Canada Looseleaf includes three new chapters which provide more extensive treatment to issues that were covered only interstitially in the fourth edition.

Chapter 26, Citizenship, covers immigration and citizenship, among other things. Chapter 32, Health, brings together the many constitutional issues that have arisen in the field of health care, including the constitutionality of the Canada Health Act and the issues of access by deaf people (Eldridge), coverage of autism therapy (Auton) and the problem of excessive waiting times in the public system (Chaoulli).

Chapter 33, Social Security, covers unemployment insurance, old age pensions, workers’ compensation and social assistance, all topics that have accumulated interesting constitutional decisions.

In addition to the new chapters, the new loose-leaf edition has been completely rewritten to bring the text and the footnotes up to date, with scarcely a page escaping some alteration, with some chapters (Equality, Fundamental Justice, and Education) also undergoing a reorganization to better reflect the doctrine recently developed by the Supreme Court.

As well, there are seven updated appendices, which include all relevant Canadian constitutional legislation, as well as the American Bill of Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, a more complete and up-to-date bibliography, and an index that is accurate for the whole of this new edition.

The definitive work on Canadian constitutional law, written by a respected constitutional law scholar. All aspects of the subject are thoroughly analyzed, including:-

  • Basic constitutional concepts such as: financial arrangements, the courts, the Crown, treaties, parliamentary sovereignty and delegation
  • Distribution of powers including: criminal law, property and civil rights, transportation and communication, the family, aboriginals, natural resources, taxation, and in the 5th edition three new chapters dealing with citizenship and immigration, health, and social security.
  • Civil liberties: Charter application, limitation of rights, overriding rights, enforcement of rights, expression of rights, fundamental justice, search and seizure, and detention and arrest
  • Practice-related issues: unconstitutional effect, standing and procedure, and evidence and proof.
Newly added to the looseleaf edition is a CD-ROM containing the full text of court decisions cited in the text.
