With the rapidly-evolving real estate landscape in Ontario, real estate lawyers will now enjoy the benefit of having on their bookshelves the preeminent comprehensive resource vital to their practice, The Law of Subdivision Control in Ontario, authored by Torkin Manes’ Sidney Troister.

Always considered the Planning Act bible for real estate lawyers, this recently-published 4th edition includes commentary on the most recent amendments to the problematic Ontario Planning Act, which Sidney was instrumental in effecting. As an expert on the provisions of subdivision control in Ontario, which affect every real estate transaction in Ontario, Sidney dedicated more than two decades championing changes to the legislation. He was subsequently engaged as a formal advisor to  Minister Steve Clark, who resumed an initiative started by now Attorney General, Doug Downey, to effect legislative reform to the Ontario Planning Act. To credit his determination and persistence, these game-changing amendments, which became law effective January 1, 2022, will benefit owners, farmers, land developers, lenders, real estate lawyers and agents, title insurers, and the public at large.

The book will soon be available for purchase from Thomson Reuters.
