Apportionment of Fault In Tort (1981) – David Cheifetz

An unrestricted PDF of Cheifetz, Apportionment of Fault in Tort is now available through this site.

The “price”, for Canadian purchasers, will be a donation of CDN $20 to either the Toronto Hospital for Sick Children or the Vancouver Children’s Hospital. Purchasers from other countries should chose a suitable children’s hospital or equivalent in their jurisdictions.

If you want the PDF: Send a request to me at with a copy of the donation confirmation and the email address to which you want me to email the link which you will use to download the file. It is about 45KB . I expect you will have the file within 48 hours of my receipt of the proof of donation.

If there is some reason for urgency – after 40 years I’m hard-pressed to imagine what that might, then make the request by a comment to this page.

I have placed a sample chapter, available for downloading, on the “Selected Publications” page. It is the first entry. You get there either through the menu on the right side of this page or the banner menu (the black boxes with white letters) below the graphic

My plan and expectation is that a new version of the text will appear in the latter part of 2022 or in 2023 covering all of the provinces and territories to the same extent as Apportionment focused on Ontario. The chapter on Quebec will be available in English and French.
