A Note about Jurisdiction
Canada is a country that, in addition to its national government, has as many legislatures as it has provinces and territories, all passing laws that regulate powers of attorney and estate matters. In addition, there are two legal systems responsible for the regulation of these matters, the Common Law and, in Quebec, the Civil Law. Thus, while this website and our book is written primarily from the Common Law tradition and with the details of Ontario law in mind, the accounting principles and methods are universal and applicable across Canada regardless of the legal peculiarities of provincial and territorial legislation. Readers must seek out appropriate legal and/or accounting advice given their province/territory of residence and the particular circumstances in which they find themselves.
