Governance and Restructurings

OVERVIEW - Governance and Restructurings

Canadians have long recognized the importance of developing appropriate governance models for public entities. From the 1962 Royal Commission on Government Organization (Glassco Commission), to the creation of multi-tiered municipalities in Ontario during the 1970s, to hospital restructurings in the 1990s, to the perennial revision of the jurisdiction of public regulators, governance models and restructurings have always been at the forefront of public affairs in Canada. We have acted for a variety of government clients in dealing with these significant issues, and our lawyers understand the practical and legal importance of ensuring appropriate outcomes in such initiatives.
