Abstract:

"Taking the Complexity Out of Canadian Statutory Interpretation. The interpretation of statutes in Canada has very broad applications in both the academic and practical arenas. As essential as the need for understanding how legislation is constructed, practitioners are often left wanting simple solutions that can be employed efficiently. Those seeking brief and sensible answers to basic queries or quick solutions to interpretation problems have few places to turn, especially when grappling with the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and, even more so, with international law - two areas that are rapidly becoming indispensable when dealing with statutory interpretation in Canada ...

Expert commentary - provides more context for statutes by explaining the interpretative roles of both the Canadian Charter and international law -- Practical advice - examples and illustrations from across Canada's federal and provincial jurisdictions truly make this a nationally-focused publication -- Case law - detailed analysis of the key judicial decisions and a table of cases that practitioners in particular will find extremely valuable -- Research tools - an in-depth bibliography steering those seeking more background material to the appropriate sources -- Relevant legislation - complete reproduction of both the Interpretation Act (Canada) and Interpretation Act (Quebec).
