Mar 2016

Our updated guide, Lending in Canada, considers some of the key issues related to lending activities in Canada by foreign entities.

The Canadian lending market offers a wide breadth of traditional and alternative opportunities for foreign banks and lending institutions to invest in. Whether operating as “foreign banks”, as branches or subsidiaries of Canadian banks, or as other credit providers, foreign investors are perfectly poised to reach Canadian borrowers. The 2016 guide covers the following areas:

  • Part I: Canadian bank regulation
  • Part II: Taking security in Canada
  • Part III: Taking security in specific types of assets
  • Part IV: Additional considerations concerning taking security in Canada
  • Part V: Law in Québec
  • Part VI: Lending in Canada
  • Part VII: Enforcing secured creditor interests in Canada

This guide also examines how the Canadian regulatory and legislative landscapes differ from those in the U.S. and informs readers on how to best navigate these areas while remaining mindful of key legislation, such as the federal Bank Act.
