The Definitive Guide to a Unique Corporate Law Statute
The Nova Scotia Companies Act (NSCA) is one of the oldest general incorporation statutes still used in Canada today. First enacted in 1900, it has been substantially amended only ten times, and is one of the few remaining examples of the traditional English memorandum system of incorporation in Canada. This unusual provenance has resulted in an incorporation statute that is uniquely flexible and has preserved business structures such as the unlimited liability company that have made Nova Scotia the incorporation jurisdiction of choice for many inter-provincial and international businesses in recent years. On June 1, 2008, several substantial amendments to the NSCA were enacted.
In this publication Professor Bradley provides a comprehensive consolidation of Nova Scotia's business law and incorporation statutes, including the NSCA, the Nova Scotia Partnerships Act, the Societies Act, the Co-operative Associations Act, and the yet-to-be in force Community Interest Corporations Act, along with expert commentary explaining all of the new changes since the NSCA's overhaul revision on June 1, 2008 and the key features of this unique legislation.
The First Book of Its Kind
The NSCA is not currently published commercially in Canada, often leaving corporate legal practitioners and students in Nova Scotia to use unwieldy, un-indexed and often out-dated internet printouts. This publication finally provides a useful reference resource, offering a legislative consolidation of the NSCA together with all related statues, regulations and Bradley's extensive commentary on such important topics as Nova Scotia's unlimited liability companies (ULCs).
