2nd edition (New edition)

Pension Law 2/e

Overview

Winner of the 2007 Walter Owen Book Prize (first edition)

The second edition brings pension law up to date with consideration of recent cases such as Re Indalex, in which the Supreme Court of Canada examined how to allocate the risks of an employer’s insolvency among its creditors. This edition tracks the shift of the law of trusts within pension jurisprudence from “classic” trusts to “modern” trusts; the reform of minimum pension standards; new plan design legislation being offered to respond to decreasing pension plan coverage among the Canadian workforce; the development of target benefit plans; and innovative plan designs such as New Brunswick’s new “shared risk” plan model.

The book will be an invaluable resource for anyone who needs to understand this complex legal and regulatory environment including lawyers, human resources officers, plan administrators and trustees, actuaries, accountants, public servants, and union officials.
