Enforcement of Foreign Judgments in Canada
Lincoln Caylor and Maureen Ward are the co-authors of "Enforcement of Foreign Judgments in Canada" published in NYSBA International Law Practicum, 2018, Vol. 31, No. 2. Guided by the principles of comity, co-operation and efficiency in an increasingly connected world, the law surrounding the enforcement and recognition of foreign judgments in Canada has undergone significant change in the past two decades. The general trend in recent case law in Canada has been an expansion in how courts address jurisdiction and comity, and this trend has resulted in a more liberal framework for the enforcement of foreign judgments.
