What Should Businesses Do About the Recommendation to Wear Masks in Indoor Public Spaces Until Fully Vaccinated?
Lawson Lundell LLP, July 2021

B.C.’s Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry,[1] and the Public Health Agency of Canada,[2] have recommended that individuals who are not fully vaccinated[3] continue wearing masks in indoor public spaces. At the same time, public authorities are providing little to no guidance on how or when businesses can continue mask requirements. They are also not providing any guidance on whether or how businesses can ask an individual about their vaccination status or otherwise be able to enforce the recommendations against those who are not fully vaccinated...

Lawson Lundell LLP, July 2021

Public Health ‘Trumps’ Commercial Losses – B.C. Supreme Court Rules in Favour of Landlords in a COVID-19 Related Termination
Lawson Lundell LLP, June 2021

Commercial landlords have, in the past year and a half, dealt with many novel issues in relation to COVID-19, often on an emergency basis. Few landlords have had to deal with both public health order violations and gang crime relating to the same tenant, as in a recent decision of the B.C. Supreme Court, Ivy Lounge West Georgia Limited Partnership v. TA F&B Limited Partnership, 2021 BCSC 997. The court allowed the immediate termination of an occupation licence where the tenant’s conduct was bringing the hotel into disrepute, potentially strengthening landlords’ hands to take urgent action...

Amendments to the Business Corporations Act Permit Virtual Meetings in British Columbia
Lawson Lundell LLP, June 2021

Virtual shareholder meetings have become ubiquitous for both public and private companies since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Canadian securities regulators, stock exchanges and federal and provincial governments quickly responded to accommodate electronic meetings where it was otherwise not permitted.
