Vital statistics are data collected by the registration of vital events, such as births, stillbirths, deaths, and marriages, and are increasingly relevant in our information age. This information is also an important tool to monitor population growth, serve as an important source of public health information, and may be used for methodological studies and survey sampling. Such information has also been critical in identifying, understanding and controlling communicable diseases. This title examines the constitution law relating to the collection and registration of vital statistics by federal, provincial and territorial governments.

Topics covered include:

While the ownership and protection of animals is affected by laws of general application, such as the law of property and the criminal law, legislation has also been enacted at all levels of government targeting the regulation of animals in their many different capacities. This title discusses both the diverse legislative framework and the common law principles that affect the treatment of wild and domestic animals in Canada, such as biodiversity protection, prevention of cruelty and the health of animals, pedigree, ownership and identification, and torts involving animals.
