Western Canada has seen a tremendous resurgence in insolvency and restructuring activity. Transaction professionals are now forced to switch gears, increasingly devoting their efforts to preserving businesses rather than growing them. The global credit crunch, Alberta’s energy royalty program, plummeting energy prices and overexpansion of real estate projects have exacerbated this situation.

Before Canada’s financial health returns, Bill C-12 will likely become law, amending the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (BIA), the
Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act (CCAA), and changing the landscape for insolvency and restructuring professionals.

With courts on both sides of the border recognizing jurisdiction of each other’s insolvency laws and systems, practitioners have
increasing business opportunities and learning challenges in a continent-wide market.
