Enforcement Remedies of Creditors

  • Roderick J. Wood


This article begins by discussing the history of the enforcement remedies possessed by creditors against debtor's goods in Alberta. The author examines the new Personal Property Security Act legislation and the more recent Civil Enforcement Act. He outlines the objectives of such legislation and the competing policy concerns that need to be considered when such legislation is drafted. The article concludes by assessing the approach taken in relation to the four rudimentary elements of an enforcement system: seizure, sale, restrictions of enforcement, and judicial intervention.
