Comparing Canada's New Ultimate Benefit ...

Canada’s new Bill C-86 Budget Implementation Act, 2018 No.2 rules come into full force this coming June. The updated rules require certain financial and other transactional organizations to be subject to mandatory Ultimate Beneficial Ownership (UBO) disclosure requirements, which means they need to update their entity management workflows.

Disclosure requirements are part of a global trend towards corporate transparency, but specific requirements vary between jurisdictions. Due to these new regulations, we thought it would be interesting to compare the Canadian UBO disclosure requirements with those of the European Union and the United States.

Contracts aren’t real: A principle of ...

Who entered into a contract today? We all racked our minds, trying to think if we had signed anything that day.

Cell phone contracts? A new apartment lease? Maybe a new credit card?

That was the first question my contracts professor, Thomas Telfer, asked us seven years ago. It was my first day of law school at the University of Western Ontario. It was one of the most important questions I’ve been asked in my entire (alt)legal career.
