What is the test for constructive trust in a claim for unjust enrichment?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Rockwell v. Fay, 2009 BCSC 935 (CanLII):

If unjust enrichment has been found, the next issue becomes the question of remedy. A constructive trust should be imposed as a remedy for unjust enrichment only where a monetary remedy would be inadequate: Peter v. Beblow at 997; B. (J.A.) v. C. (H.W.), 2008 BCSC 644, 58 R.F.L. (6th) 295 at para. 155.
