This year, top experts will join us in Montréal to explore the major issues in Canadian insolvency, including:

  • Turbulent times ahead for the retail pharmacy sector:

For years retail pharma has been a haven of peace and quiet - a sector of the retail industry coveted by financial institutions and reputed for its wealth, stability and bullet-proof performance. However, as demographic changes and retail technology have evolved, retail pharma is presently poised for some turbulent times.

  • A view from some Canadian courts

Judges from the Supreme Court of Canada, the Superior Court of Quebec and the Quebec Court of Appeal have a discussion about how their respective courts consider insolvency matters.

CAIRP experts discuss the most recent trends in Canadian consumer insolvency and issues facing personal insolvency practitioners.
