Professor Jasminka Kalajdzic (University of Windsor Faculty of Law) has posted "The Globalization of Class Actions: Canada" on SSRN.
The abstract states:
As part of an international group of scholars who came together in December 2007 to discuss and debate the use of class actions worldwide, the authors prepared a report on the role of class proceedings in Canada. The original report followed a format designed by the conference organizers and traced the procedural particularities and historical pedigree of class actions in Canada, as well as the general policy rationales and arguments that continue to attend them. Condensed versions of the country reports, including this Canadian report, were published in March 2009.
