Controlled Drugs and Substances

Alan D. Gold, B.Sc., LL.B.

Canada's federal drug control statute provides a detailed listing of controlled drugs and substances. This regulatory regime provides authorities with a broad set of powers regarding search and seizure and other such measures which may limit personal liberty, with implications for Canadian criminal law, health law, constitutional law, consumer safety laws and even real estate law.

Halsbury's Laws of Canada – Controlled Drugs and Substances, written by one of Canada's pre-eminent criminal law practitioners and authors, provides an unparalleled summary of drug control legislation, including the meaning of possession, trafficking and prescribed enforcement measures.


M. David Keeshan, B.A., LL.B.

The Crown is involved in all aspects of the administration of justice, through statutes, regulations and policies. At both the federal and provincial level, the Crown is the most frequent party involved in judicial proceedings in Canada. Legal practitioners in all areas must understand the unique rights and protections enjoyed by the Crown and its pivotal role in the justice system.

Halsbury's Laws of Canada – Crown details the rights and responsibilities of the Crown, including, Crown prerogative and Crown immunity. It examines the Crown's privileges and potential liability in various contexts, such as tort, contract and property law, providing insight into its dual role as advocate and protector of the public interest.
