Abstract

In honour of the 40th Consumer and Commercial law Workshop and the 50th volume of the Canadian Business Law Journal the authors were asked to provide a retrospective of developments in the conflict of laws that highlights emerging issues. They present their comments in a conversational fashion in which each presents a perspective upon which the other two authors comment.

The following issues are discussed: reorientation of Canadian private international law following the Morguard decision (Supreme Court of Canada, 1990); convergence - both international and interprovincial; and becoming more worldly in a changing world.

Keywords: Canada, Private international law, Conflict of laws
