The corporation is at the centre of economic activity in virtually every business sector in Canada. Not surprisingly, therefore, the laws which govern its creation, management and dissolution can be of central concern to lawyers practising in virtually every field of law. Halsbury's Laws of Canada's comprehensive two volume title Business Corporations (2013 Reissue) provides practitioners - especially those who don't specialize in corporate law - with the respected guidance that they need to understand the fundamental legal principles and issues that impact the operation and obligations of Canadian business corporations.

Utilizing the acclaimed Halsbury's format and style, Business Corporations (2013 Reissue) provide a clear and national narrative of the law as it relates to both the overarching framework and the specific rules set out in the various federal, provincial and territorial business corporation statutes in force across Canada. From basic principles of corporate personality and incorporation to corporate financing, the powers and liability of directors, shareholder remedies and corporate dissolution, these valuable volumes deliver an authoritative and accessible explanation of Canadian corporate principles. Topics covered include:

And much more.
