Course Description

Secured lending and credit play an enormous role in Canada’s economy, and modern legislation expressly facilitates secured transactions. This course will analyze the growth and development of secured creditors in Canada. It will discuss the objects and purposes of secured credit and consider whether the current system meets them efficiently and effectively. Comparisons will be made with the experience of other major commercial economies. This course will also deal with the remedies that are available to secured creditors in an insolvency, particularly the nature and extent of the receivership remedy and the contrasts between court and privately-appointed receivers. The course will review other remedies available to secured creditors, the responsibilities of secured creditors in enforcement situations, the rights of debtors and guarantors and the supervisory role of the courts over creditors and enforcement. It will also analyze the differing U.S. and U.K. systems governing the rights and remedies of secured creditors.
