Another subset of tort law (specif‌ically of negligence), this topic deals with the legal respon-
sibilities of property owners and occupiers (tenants) to ensure that their premises are free
from potential dangers to visitors. An example of a garden variety occupier’s liability case
would be a slip-and-fall-suit because of a wet f‌loor, or because of an icy sidewalk leading to the
premises. This is an area of provincial concern and is heavily rooted in caselaw. Related topics:
