Securities Law in Canada: Cases and Commentary, 3rd Edition provides a comprehensive account of the principles and practical operation of securities law. Readers are guided through recent legal developments while exploring the broader debate surrounding the role played by securities markets and the regulations in those markets, the economy, and society at large.

This casebook also features insights and reviews of recent proceedings that have contributed to current governing principles. This includes decisions made by both the Supreme Court and the Ontario Securities Commission.

As with previous editions, the overarching theme in this text focuses on an analysis of the ways in which security administrations try to produce harmonization across provinces using national rules. To achieve this, each chapter reflects on the level of harmonization or divergence of provincial securities law across Canada. The author team draws experience from different areas of Canada, allowing for complete coverage across each provincial jurisdiction.
