It’s been years since bankruptcy practitioners have been this busy. And while many have worked through other recessions, this time there are new issues, such as the inability to refinance in a credit crunch, the need for WEPPA compliance, insolvent lenders and the wild card posed by credit-default swap holders.

The Canadian Institute’s Western Canadian Advanced Insolvency Law and Practice conference, now offered for the first time in British Columbia, offers an intensive update on today’s most pressing issues.

This is your chance to learn from leading practitioners from western Canada, as well as guest speakers from the United States who have extensive experience with cross-border files.

We’re also delighted to welcome The Hon. Grant Burnyeat and The Hon. Barbara Romaine, two of western Canada’s most respected insolvency judges, to the program.

Plus, benefit from industry-specific sessions on distressed real estate, forestry, the oil patch and vehicle dealerships.

Another new component is a special small-group workshop for personal bankruptcy practitioners, on Friday, September 18. With personal bankruptcies soaring, this is a great opportunity to learn more about current issues and exchange ideas with your peers.
