The Liberal Government Plans to Change Canada's Environmental Legislation​

14 février 2018

On February 8, 2018, Catherine McKenna, Minister of Environment and Climate Change tabled Bill C-69.

Prepaid Cards: Deposit Accounts? Or Something Else? Answer: It depends.

9 février 2018

​Recently, B.C.'s Financial Institutions Commission ("FICOM") reviewed the structure of certain prepaid cards issued by All Trans Financial Services Credit Union Limited ("All Trans") and said that those cards were in effect a 'deposit account' and that All Trans was supposedly carrying on unauthorized deposit business in B.C. All Trans challenged the decision and the B.C. Supreme Court. The Court found that the prepaid card program did not require All Trans to be authorized as a deposit taking institution in B.C.; the hallmarks of a deposit account were not present. As financial institutions and FinTech companies look to develop new ways to provide financial services, this case highlights the need to consider both substance and form to negotiate regulatory boundaries and barriers.
