Q2 2023: Environmental priorities outside of insolvency and RVOs

August 2023


Are the Courts starting to take a more active role in scrutinizing RVOs? Will the recent case law on environmental priorities outside of insolvency impact the lending market?

Join us for an informative 1-hour discussion in which our expert panel considers these questions, together with the implications of a number of significant recent cases. We’ll cover, among other things:

  • the ongoing Qualex case, which deals with environmental priorities outside the insolvency context and is causing a quite a stir in the lender community;
  • guidance from the Ontario court on the appropriate timing to bring a receivership application;
  • the Québec court’s comments on whether a court can suspend ROFRs and other restrictive covenants between a debtor and solvent parties on the initiation of a SISP;
  • whether we will see a decrease in the number of RVOs sought and approved in insolvency proceedings following the BC court’s decision in the PaySlate case; and
  • the circumstances that justified an order accepting the late filing of 265 claims without an assessment of whether the claims met the test in Blue Range.
