B.C. Ministry of Justice is Seeking Comments on Proposed New Trustee Act

The Ministry of Justice is asking for comments on a proposed new Trustee Act based on the recommendations of the Uniform Law Conference of Canada, in its Final Report of its Working Group, Uniform Trustee Act. The Uniform Law Conference of Canada Working Group drew heavily from the recommendations of the British Columbia Law Institute's 2004 report, A Modern Trustee Act for British Columbia.

I plan to write future posts on some of the specific proposals. For now I simply provide my my opinion that reform of our Trustee Act is long overdue.

The consultation period is open until July 31, 2014. If you are interested in providing comments to the Ministry of Justice, you may do so as follows:
