Description of last year's 2011 edition:

Ontario Municipal Law: A User's Manual 2011 is designed to provide municipal councillors, officers and staff, including municipal solicitors and lawyers in private practice respecting clients who deal with municipalities with a comprehensive yet easy-to-use reference to municipal law.

This edition fully incorporates the amendments to the Municipal Act, 2001 and the Municipal Elections Act, 1996 contained in the Good Government Act, 2009. It also has all the significant municipal law decisions issued over the last year, including:
  • Divisional Court's decision in Holyday v. City of Toronto (municipality lacks authority to reimburse councillors for legal costs of fighting compliance audit),
  • Court of Appeal's decisions in Niagara River Coalition v. Niagara-on-the-Lake (Town) (municipality can enter licence agreements granting exclusive licence to use parts of town property),
  • Jackson v. Vaughan (City) (city has authority to appoint prosecutor with respect to alleged contraventions of the MEA),
  • Crinson v. Toronto (City) (proving gross negligence),
  • 1392290 Ontario Ltd. v. Ajax (Town) (mother parcel on a severance is "eligible property" under s. 331(20)).
Features of the 2011 edition include:
  • Full text of the Municipal Act, 2001, the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act, the Municipal Elections Act, 1996, and the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, each annotated with expert commentary and succinct summaries of hundreds of relevant court decisions
  • 29 checklists designed to provide quick and practical reference to key issues
  • Unique provisions of the City of Toronto Act, 2006 grouped under a separate tab
  • All significant regulations and forms, under relevant sections
  • CD-ROM of fillable Municipal Election Act forms, Municipal Tax Sales Rules forms, and forms under the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.
All purchases of software are final. More information can be found in our Return Policy.

This portable and timely work meets the needs of municipal law practitioners and officials who are grappling with this complex legislation. It contains a mix of legal and practical information and is designed to be used by both municipal law practitioners and non-lawyers.
