OBA Members Helping to Inform Business Law Reform Efforts

  • 10 juillet 2015

The Ministry of Government and Consumer Services (MGCS) is currently seeking feedback on priorities and recommendations for reform of Ontario's corporate and commercial legislation.

The 2015-16 Ontario Budget included plans to review Ontario’s business law statutes, and the MGCS is now seeking feedback on priorities and recommendations for reform of Ontario’s corporate and commercial legislation.

Several OBA members were invited by the government to participate in The Law Agenda Stakeholder Panel and provide recommendations to the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services. Their recent report, “Business Law Agenda: Priority Findings and Recommendations Report,” is available here.

The Ontario Bar Association and its members have a reputation for providing practical, expert advice on business law matters and are ideally positioned to help collect ideas and continue providing input to this process.  With the government seeking public feedback for their report and their future agenda, the OBA will host a Business Law Reform Summit on October 8, 2015 to bring lawyers, members of the business community and government together to help identify opportunities for business law reform.
