New rules to avoid a black eye

Written by
b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-CANADIANLawyer_Columnists_jennifer_r_nees_2012.jpgIt’s a long-running joke that the government likes to make major regulatory or practice changes during a public holiday or right before a long weekend. The latest crop of business immigration related changes came right before we rang in the New Year, with an effective date of Dec. 31, 2013. The changes presented some challenges regarding news forms, but also provided insight into how the government perceives the temporary foreign worker program and its continued use in Canada.

The Hollick approach is here to stay

Written by
b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-CANADIANLawyer_Columnists_kirkbaertnew2013.jpgIn October 2001, the Supreme Court of Canada advocated a liberal and flexible construction of the Ontario Class Proceedings Act, 1992 in Hollick v. Toronto (City). In particular, Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin, on behalf of the court, held the CPA is to be “construed generously” in a manner that gives “full effect to the benefits foreseen by the drafters” — the Hollick approach.

CASL: clear as mud

Written by

b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-CANADIANLawyer_Columnists_Lisa-Lifshitz.jpgOn Dec. 4, 2013, the Government of Canada published the final regulations to Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation along with the related Regulatory Impact Analysis Statement. After three years of waiting, most of CASL, including the sections dealing with commercial electronic messages, will finally come into force on July 1. Mercifully, those sections of the act relating to the installation of computer programs will only come into force on Jan. 15, 2015, and the coming into force of the new private right of action for non-compliance with CASL will only be implemented July 1, 2017.

Every January, millions resolve to make all kinds of lifestyle changes, like eating more vegetables, exercising more, eliminating vices, and re-connecting with family. I’m one of those people who enthusiastically embrace the annual tradition of New Year’s resolutions. I know, shocker.

b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-CANADIANLawyer_Columnists_Stephen-Mabey-2013.jpgAt the risk of getting stomped, bitten, or kicked, I think it is important to start 2014 off by putting the horse before the cart. I apologize upfront for bursting the bubble of all those souls who have spent the last couple years espousing that the greatest issue facing law firms is their structure.
