Jay Brecher, B.A., LL.B.

As sports and recreational activity continue to play an important role in Canadian society, the legal issues that arise from athletics assume an increasing profile. This is true whether the issue concerns the organizational framework of amateur sports, rules regarding performance-enhancing drugs, or criminal and civil liability arising from actions occurring during the course of play. Newly revised and covering both amateur and professional activities, the Athletics (2021 Reissue) title sets out the legal framework that supports and regulates sports and athletic activity in Canada. Topics covered include:

  • National sports
  • The governance and promotion of sports
  • Activities involving animals
  • Boxing and other combat sports, ice hockey and snow sports, and concussion safety
  • Amateur sports bodies and programs, including the Canadian Olympic Committee, U Sports and the Canadian Anti-Doping Program
  • Employment of professional athletes
  • Criminal and civil liability


    Clay Hunter, B.A., LL.B.

    Canada's first heavier-than-air powered aircraft took flight in 1909. More than a century after this historic event, the law governing aviation and carriage by air has evolved into a large, complex and international body of agreements, regulations and statutory requirements. As Canadian aeronautics continues its second hundred years, the legal and technical framework continues to develop to accommodate the growing field of law relating to the commercial exploitation of space.

    To assist lawyers with issues that may arise in the course of practice, the newly updated Aviation and Space (2021 Reissue) title discusses the legal framework that governs aviation in Canada and provides a narrative of the law relating to the commercial and non-commercial use of space. Topics covered include:

  • The constitutional, legislative and regulatory structure of aviation law
  • International sources of aviation law
  • Licensing and regulation of aircraft, air operators, personnel, aerodromes, airports, heliports and air traffic services
  • Air passenger protection and accessible transportation for persons with disabilities
  • Criminal enforcement and civil liability
  • Accident investigation
  • International space law and United Nations treaties
  • Commercial space travel and the law relating to satellites
