    Undoing Border Imperialism combines academic discourse, lived experiences of displacement, and movement-based practices into an exciting new book. By reformulating immigrant rights movements within a transnational analysis of capitalism, labor exploitation, settler colonialism, state building, and racialized empire, it provides the alternative conceptual frameworks of border imperialism and decolonization. Drawing on the author's experiences in No One Is Illegal, this work offers relevant insights for all social movement organizers on effective strategies to overcome the barriers and borders within movements in order to cultivate fierce, loving, and sustainable communities of resistance striving toward liberation. The author grounds the book in collective vision, with short contributions from over twenty organizers and writers from across North America.

    Unfulfilled legal needs are at a tipping point in much of the Canadian justice system.

    Sommaire:

    Otter's Journey employs the Anishinaabe tradition of storytelling to explore how Indigenous language revitalization can inform the emerging field of Indigenous legal revitalization. Indigenous languages and laws need bodies to live in. Learning an endangered language or a suppressed legal system are similar experiences. When we bring language back to life, it becomes a medium for developing human relationships. Likewise, when laws are written on people's hearts, rather than merely on paper, true revitalization has occurred. Storytelling has the capacity to address feelings and demonstrate themes--to go beyond argumentation and theoretical exposition. Within this paradigm, Otter, the clan figure of the Chippewas of Nawash First Nation, journeys across Anishinaabe, Inuit, Maori, Coast Salish, and Abenaki territories to learn how Indigenous struggles toward self-determination compare. While Otter's Journey is guided by a literal truth, it also splices and recombines real-world events and characters. Through her engaging protagonist, Lindsay Keegitah Borrows reveals that the processes, philosophies, and standards of decision making held within Indigenous languages and laws can emerge from the layers of contemporary settler nation-state laws, policies, and language to guide us in the twenty-first century. We need the best of all people's teachings to lead us into the future.

    Sommaire:

    North of El Norteprovides an important counterpoint to the attention given to Mexican migration to the United States by examining a lesser-known migration route: that taken b by contemporary Mexican migrants to Canada. Paloma Villegas examines not only the implications of changing Canadian immigration policy and practice but also the barriers that migrants without permanent resident status encounter once in Canada, specifically in the labour market, in their creative pursuits, and in accessing health care. Her comprehensive research sheds light on how individuals and institutions work to illegalize migrants and on the migrants' active resistance to those efforts.

    “There’s no place for the state in the bedrooms of the nation,” Pierre Elliott Trudeau told reporters. He was making the case for the most controversial of his proposed reforms to the Criminal Code, those concerning homosexuality, birth control, and abortion. In No Place for the State,contributors offer complex and often contrasting perspectives as they assess how the 1969 Omnibus Bill helped shape sexual and moral politics in Canada. Fifty years later, the origins and legacies of the bill are equivocal and the state still seems interested in sexual regulation. This incisive study explains why that matters.

Ce rapport définit et met en évidence les possibilités et les défis connexes pour les éditeurs canadiens et le secteur canadien de l’édition, francophone et anglophone, en fournissant également quelques suggestions sur la manière de se préparer et de s’adapter aux exigences. Le rapport est structuré en deux parties. La première décrit l’EAA, notamment sa relation avec le Traité de Marrakech; la deuxième partie traite des mesures que devront prendre les éditeurs canadiens pour satisfaire aux exigences de l’EAA et pour élargir leur base d’exportation sur le marché européen. De plus, le guide présente les éléments suivants : - un aperçu détaillé de l’EAA et de ses obligations; - un éclairage particulier sur le secteur de l’édition, notamment une description du rôle de chaque segment de la chaîne de valeur de la production et de la distribution de livres numériques; - des informations sur les normes d’accessibilité exigées pour le secteur de l’édition; - des renseignements sur la manière dont ceux qui offrent leurs services de livres numériques et leurs appareils de lecture dans l’UE doivent se préparer à mettre en oeuvre les exigences de cette nouvelle législation. L’EAA peut être mis en oeuvre de différentes manières dans les différents pays qui composent l’UE afin de s’harmoniser avec les législations existantes. Sa mise en oeuvre en est encore à ses débuts dans les pays de l’UE. Certains aspects devront encore faire l’objet d’une interprétation détaillée, qui sera clarifiée au cours du processus de mise en oeuvre nationale. Néanmoins, ces informations sont fournies dans le but de préparer les éditeurs canadiens aux défis et possibilités que présente cette législation.

    A guide to researching your family’s inheritance history in Ontario. Whether your ancestor left hundreds of acres of land, money, or a few modest belongings, the records created when those legacies were distributed can provide valuable clues to family connections, relationships, and just how your ancestors lived. Inheritance in Ontario will help you determine whether your relative’s will was proved in the Court of Probate, surrogate courts, or another court, and navigate the finding aids to locate surviving estate files and other complementary records at the Archives of Ontario, local courthouse or archives, or through FamilySearch.org. Not every Ontario estate was handled by a court, however, and land records, newspapers, and manuscript collections can also help you discover "who got what."

    Digital records and broad access to the Internet have made it easier for genealogists to gather relevant information from distant sources and to share the information they have gathered. The law, however, remains tied to particular geographic locations. This book discusses how specific laws – access to information, personal data protection, libel, copyright, and regulation of cemeteries – apply to anyone involved in genealogical research in Canada.

    Sommaire:

    This book tells the story of a First Nation’s single-minded quest for justice. In 1958, the federal government leased part of the small Musqueam Reserve in Vancouver to an exclusive golf club at below market value. When the band members discovered this in 1970, they initiated legal action. Their tenacity led to the 1984 decision in Guerin v. The Queen,whereby the Supreme Court of Canada held that the government has a fiduciary duty towards Indigenous peoples. Jim Reynolds, who served as one of the legal counsel for the Musqueam, provides an in-depth analysis of this landmark case and its impact on Canadian law, politics, and society. By recognizing that the Musqueam had enforceable legal rights, the Guerincase changed the relationship between governments and Indigenous peoples from one of wardship to one based on legal rights. It was a seismic decision.

    The growing presence in Western society of non-mainstream faiths and spiritual practices poses a dilemma for the law. Building on a thorough history of the legal regulation of fortune-telling laws in four countries,Faith or Fraudexamines the impact of people who identify as “spiritual but not religious” (SBNR) on the future legal understanding of religious freedom. Unlike SBNR belief systems that can encompass multiple religions, philosophies, and folklore, traditional legal interpretations of “freedom of religion” are based on organized religion and are ultimately shown to have failed to evolve along with ideas about religion itself.

    The handbook covers the essential grounds for detention, the legislation, the case law and the procedural protocol of the Immigration Division. The case study of Alfred Blake provides practical insight on all the preparation work that is necessary in order to present a powerful case for the release of the detainee. There is an analysis of detention review transcripts with review questions, so the reader can understand and tackle some of the difficulties that are involved in these cases. The chapter on advocacy provides a short refresher on the essential rules of questioning of witnesses, oral submissions and etiquette in the Immigration Division. There is a chapter in the book that deals with the solvency tests that the CBSA will use to decide whether to physically release the detainee after the member of the division makes a release order. There are also handy resources in a chapter in the book to help the impecunious detainee reach out for free government subsidized legal help and representation. The chapter on appeals will give the representative the knowledge and tools to challenge detention decisions of the Immigration Division. The final chapter focuses on recent developments, including a detailed examination of the 2017 Laird Report, which highlights deficiencies in the detention review process and makes some well-needed recommendations. The appendices provide useful precedents and templates that are consistently used in detention review cases as well as essential source materials from legislation and regulations. Important precedents on how to draft retainers and affidavits are also included. This handbook is aimed to be a one-stop comprehensive legal resource on detention reviews in Canada.

    Resettlement – the selection and transfer of refugees from the state where they seek asylum to another state – is considered a tool of refugee protection. In this nuanced account of Canada’s resettlement program from the Indochinese crisis of the 1970s to the Syrian crisis of the 2010s, Shauna Labman examines the role that law plays in resettlement and the impact of resettlement on asylum policies. She concludes that resettlement programs can either complement or complicate in-country asylum claims at a time when fear of outsiders is causing countries to close their borders to asylum-seekers around the world.

    Contemporary slavery has emerged as a source of fascination and a spur to political mobilization. This volume brings together experts to carefully explore how the language of slavery has been invoked to support a series of government interventions, activist projects, legal instruments, and rhetorical and visual performances. However well-intentioned these interventions might be, they remain subject to a host of limitations and complications. Recent efforts to combat slavery are too often sensationalist, self-serving, and superficial and end up failing the test of speaking truth to power. Bringing about lasting change will require direct challenges to dominant political and economic interests.
