Time: Wednesday, May 25, 2022 at 12:30pm - 1:30pm (PT)
CPD Hours: 1.00 hour

Synopsis

The BC Government has indicated that it will consider updating legislation for enforcement of money judgements. Professor Cuming, QC has been retained by the Government to assist with this process and will be discussing his experience in updating similar legislation in other jurisdictions with members.

Background Information & Reading
Background Information and Reading: CBABC has been actively lobbying for revisions to money judgments legislation in its previous and current Agenda for Justice 2021; CBABC prepared a briefing note on this important issue and is looking to update it to present to the BC Government as it undertakes a review of the legislation in the coming year.

Speaker Biography
Professor Ron Cuming has 50 years of professional experience as a professor of commercial law and more than 30 years of experience as an international consultant, with expertise in secured financing, leasing and insolvency law in Canada and Australia. Professor co-authored a report on reform of Saskatchewan judgment enforcement law which led to the enactment in 2010 of The Enforcement of Money Judgments Act (EMJA). He is under contract with the BC Ministry of Justice to be a consultant with respect to integration of a BC EMJA with the PPSA.  This is an important issue since, unlike the version recommended by the BC Law Reform Commission, the priority structure of the Saskatchewan EMJA is, for the most part, found in the priority rules of the PPSA. 

Territorial Acknowledgement
