Abstract

In this article, the author discusses the role of constructive trusts in Canada, examining the connection between unjust enrichment and the constructive trust. In particular, the author focuses on the Supreme Court of Canada decision in Soulas v. Korkontzilas and argues that constructive trusts respond to two main categories of events, the acquisition of assets in breach of duty and intentions to benefit others.
