Commercial Debt Collection in Canada: A Legal Handbook
By: David Franklin, Ad.E.
Availability: In Stock
There are ten provinces in Canada and three territories, each with separate rules of procedure. There are two distinct legal regimes, namely the common law and the civil law of Quebec. This overview of the Canadian jurisdictions provides a timely and practical guide to enforcing creditor rights. The focus of this book is on decreasing trade risk by understanding the procedures available for trade creditors. The analysis by commercial lawyers of various topics and provincial jurisdictions is practical not only for exporters involved in cross border and inter-provincial commerce, but also for attorneys, export insurers and financial institutions, and collections agencies whose clients conduct business in Canada.
