ENFORCEMENT OF FOREIGN JUDGMENTS IN CANADA
AbstractIn this article the author examines Canada’s Reciprocal Enforcement of Judgments Act and the different systems in Canada dealing with foreign judgments. He also examines the history leading up to such systems, as well as the history leading up to the Act, with a particular focus on difficulties surrounding Canada’s interprovincial recognition of judgments. He then examines the applicability of the Act to jurisdictions outside of Canada, with a particular focus on its applicability to the United States. The author discusses Canada’s lack of progress on an international level and proposes that in relations between Canada and the United States, uniform legislation may be the answer.
