How Will Reforms Change the Law?
Canadian bankruptcy law faces a unique situation. Statute c.47 was enacted in late 2005 but has not yet come into force. The "2007 Amending Bill" now calls for substantial amendments to the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act, the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act, and Statute c.47.
What exactly do these proposed reforms mean? What influence can parliamentarians, practitioners, and academics exert during this "window period" to change Canadian bankruptcy and insolvency legislation?
Canadian Bankruptcy and Insolvency Law: Bill C-55, Statute c.47 and Beyondtackles these issues from a wide range of perspectives. Respected professors Stephanie Ben-Ishai and Anthony Duggan analyze the proposed reforms and related political concerns, together with:
John A. E. Pottow
Thought-Provoking Questions to Encourage Dialogue
Each of the book's 15 chapters addresses a critical aspect of Canadian bankruptcy and reorganization law. Questions will spark debate on how current law and policy compare with developments in other countries, and whether existing proposals for reform actually meet Canada's economic needs.
- To what extent can - or should - Canadian legislation be influenced by U.S. legislation?
- Could harmonization with U.S. legislation inhibit economic development in Canada?
- Do other common law jurisdictions provide better models for reform?
- What would a distinctly "made in Canada" approach look like?
- Does Canada need both the BIA and CCAA?
- Where is greater consistency needed in the treatment of issues that are common to BIA and CCAA proceedings?
- When can judicial discretion lead to inconsistent solutions to problems across the country?
