The indispensable reference guide, first published in 1997 and now in its third edition, has been fully updated to reflect current, important changes in Canadian law. Every Canadian's Guide to the Law unfolds in a clear, accessible "cradle-to-grave" format addressing issues from fetal rights to human rights, from teen sexuality to marriage and divorce, from workplace issues to will and estate issues. Linda Silver Dranoff provides insight into the process of law and how it responds to changing social values, revealing how laws evolve over time and pointing to future trends. This trusted guide is completely up to date and addresses such essential legal questions as:
  • What are the legal rights of a worker who is pregnant, fired, harassed, paid unequally, suffers discrimination or is forced to work on contract?
  • What are the legal responsibilities of a spouse, unmarried partner, parent, child teen, employer, landlord, doctor, citizen, government?
  • What are the legal remedies when a person is injured in an accident, medical operation or childbirth? By libel or slander, secondhand smoke or discrimination? As a victim of crime, incest, rape or other forms of sexual exploitation?
  • What are the legal rules for abortion, adoption, bankruptcy, divorce, support, custody, estate distribution, living wills, marriage and cohabitation contracts, home ownership and mortgages, organ donations, powers of attorney?
