An Introduction to Environmental Law and Policy in Canada, 2nd Edition is a fabulous resource. It is a cutting edge text on Canadian environmental law and is a critical tool for anyone who wants to have a better understanding of how environmental law works and where we might be going. I especially love the case studies/concrete examples at the start of each chapter. They are extremely valuable as they illustrate the key themes in the context of the real world.”

— Oliver Brandes (BA Hons, MEcon, LLB), University of Victoria, Co-Director of POLIS Project on Ecological Governance

The second edition of An Introduction to Environmental Law and Policy in Canada presents clear and polished content appropriate for both university and college courses. This new edition has a greater depth of coverage, a focus on recent Canadian legislation and policy issues, and a new case study feature in each chapter, reflecting the great deal of change in this area of law and policy in recent years.

The text is specifically written for introductory courses, with clear explanations of legal terms and concepts for readers with no previous law background.

The only text of its kind, An Introduction to Environmental Law and Policy in Canada offers a thorough overview of the subject, and is ideal for university and college courses in environmental studies, geography, urban studies and planning, political science, and policy studies programs.
