Finally, in almost every Canadian province and territory, creditors can use corporate law oppression to challenge the security of a business. This would involve a transaction in which the company or its directors obtained a result or acted in a manner that is depressing or has unfairly nullifying the interests of certain parties (including creditors). When repressive behaviour is found, Canadian courts have broad discretion to remedy all avenues of redress they deem appropriate in the circumstances. The Canadian Bankers Association has published the model credit provisions that will be used in syndicated lending operations in Canada. The purpose of the provisions was to harmonize certain provisions of the loan contracts in order to facilitate trade on the secondary market and to introduce standard provisions for transfers and credit transactions. They are based on provisions established by the Loan Syndication and Trading Association, Inc. The use of provisions is not mandatory, but they are often used in syndicated credit transactions where the administrative officer is a major Canadian bank. The interest of the security for the property must be refined if a creditor is to take precedence over the interests of other creditors and third parties. The registration of a funding statement in the province or territory where these assets are physically located is necessary to enhance a security interest in these assets. KKSAs are publicly accessible and creditable databases and a registered financing statement serves as a public notification that a debtor`s assets have been debited to a secured creditor. The cost of submitting a funding return under the various PPSAs is nominal and varies slightly from the length of the filing period.
Safe parties must bid under the PPSAs in each province or territory where these assets are located if they are to be refined against all of these assets. Each province and territory has a system for registering real estate titles. Guaranteed creditors improve the interests of real estate by depositing a mortgage, bond, mortgage or trust company against the title of the debtor`s property. In general, registration fees for real estate mortgages are nominal. However, in several provinces and territories (Alberta, Newfoundland, the Northwest Territories, Yukon Territories and Nunavut), registration fees may be higher because they are calculated on the basis of different formulas that take into account the principal amount of the mortgage. Finally, there are several special laws that govern most federally regulated entities, such as airports, prisons and major seaports, and these should be evaluated when taking over the security that includes these facilities. If the investment property is directly owned by a debtor, an insured party obtains control of the certified securities by taking possession of the certificates and either by accepting approval or by registering the securities on its behalf. For non-certified securities, control is obtained either by registering the securities on behalf of the secured party or by the taking of a control agreement with the securities issuer. A control agreement is a tripartite agreement between the issuer, the debtor and the insured party and provides that the issuer agrees to comply with the insured party`s instructions regarding securities without further approval from the debtor. Borrowers in Canada, as in most other markets, do not have a direct contractual relationship with the borrower.
Although a member assumes the risks associated with the credit transaction in which he or she participates, he or she has no direct interest or rights to credit documents, including the guarantee, if any, related to the loan. In addition to the credit risk associated with a borrower, a participant also faces the risk associated with the solvency of the donor of a loan participation.
