Important Amendments to the Canada Business Corporations Act


Area Corporate and Commercial


Bill S-11, which makes significant amendments to the Canada Business Corporations Act (“CBCA”), received Royal Assent earlier this year. It is expected to come into force in late November or early December of 2001.
