Directors and Officers in Canada

Directors and Officers in Canada is a concise guide to the duties and liabilities of board members and corporate officers. After reviewing core company law concepts – notably fiduciary duties, the duty of care, reasonable diligence and good faith reliance – the publication considers potential liabilities in tort and extra-contractual liability, as well as directors’ duties in areas such as employment law, environmental law and taxation. For those who are involved in public companies, or whose companies may in future access the public markets, a separate section deals specifically with securities laws and regulations. The guide focuses on the law of Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec, in addition to relevant federal legislation. Download: English (822.9 Kb)
