Annual Report of the Nova Scotia Law Reform Commission
The Commission's job is to review the laws of Nova Scotia and to make recommendations for improvement, modernization and reform. This may involve either formulating new ideas and approaches to law, or proposing ways in which existing laws and the legal system can be made clearer or simpler so they can better serve the needs of the general public.
Last year, the Commission worked on a range of topics, including:
- seniors-only housing
- enforcement of civil judgments
- builders' liens
- modernization of powers of attorney
- modernization of the Matrimonial Property Act
