The Transport Finance Law Review – Edition 6

Apr 29, 2020 Publications < 1 minute read

The Transport Finance Law Review is intended to provide the industry with a guide to transport finance today globally.

The transformation of the asset finance industry triggered by the global financial crisis has been well-documented. Before the crisis, traditional asset finance, in the form of bank debt, had been the mainstay of the transport sector.

Canadian transportation policy is continuously evolving as a response to provide a more competitive regime to attract new business, while balancing other interests. Although Canada is bordered by three oceans, the majority of trade moves by rail and not by sea. Canada’s ports and harbours, railways and airports provide integral transportation to domestic and international economic activities. Canada’s marine industry comprises a number of domestic marine service operators that provide shipping services both domestically and internationally.

Access the Canadian chapter of the Transport Finance Law Review – Edition 6. The full publication can be accessed here.

The 2022 Construction Labour “Open Period” – What Employers Need to Know

March 1 – April 30, 2022 is the “Open Period” for ICI collective agreements, and many non-ICI agreements, in Ontario. During this period members of construction unions can apply to the Ontario Labour Relations Board to terminate a union’s bargaining rights with their employer, or – more commonly – a rival union can apply to the Board to displace an existing union, in what is commonly known as a “raid”. During the Open Period employers will likely see increased union activity on sites as incumbent unions will seek to maintain member support, and as rival unions may try to gather support for a raid.

Join us on Wednesday, February 2nd for a discussion about what employers should expect and need to know if a decertification application or a displacement application involving their employees is filed at the Board.
