Proprietary estoppel is but one of many rooms in the house of estoppel, regarded as unique in providing not simply a defense, but also a cause of action.  However, between UK, Australian, Canadian and American jurisprudence the differences in its underlying test and application remained unclarified in Canadian law until a 2017 SCC decision involving an estate in Victoria BC.  

This seminar will expose solicitors and litigators to the facts that may underlie a successful claim for promise-based proprietary estoppel, lively video of the SCC Justices’ concerns in arriving at the modern Canadian test for proprietary estoppel (including what is reasonable reliance), and discussion of how the Court’s decision broadens the scope of claims in proprietary estoppel to include claims for a future contingent interest, and to property other than real property.
Speaker Profile
Darren Williams prefers injury, wills/estates and transportation/marine litigation, but is passionate about helping those who have been treated unfairly in a variety of circumstances.  Darren regularly volunteers his time to pro bono representation of disadvantaged people, and legal education causes.

Winning cases at every level of court in Canada, including the Supreme Court of Canada, the Federal Court of Appeal and Federal Court, as well as the British Columbia Appeal, Supreme and Provincial Courts, and various federal and provincial boards and tribunals, Darren has a proven track record of service and dedication to his clients.

Darren has been an active member of the Victoria Bar Association since 2004 and served as president of the Victoria Bar Association in 2013.  He is also a member of the Canadian Bar Association, the Trial Lawyers Association of BC, the Canadian Maritime Law Association and the Vancouver Maritime Arbitrators Association.

He graduated from Brentwood College in 1991 and attended the University of Victoria, earning a Bachelor of Science with Honours in Psychology in 1996 and a Juris Doctor in 2000.

Andrew studied history at the University of Victoria before being admitted to the Faculty of Law, where he completed his Juris Doctor.

Prior to the practice of law, Andrew spent over a decade in the automotive industry where he operated an independent chain of service facilities with locations in Southern Vancouver Island and in Vancouver. A focus on ethical business practices and a satisfied, repeat client base helped to earn the business multiple awards over the years before it was acquired by a major national chain.
