News / CAUT pressures government to change CCAA

By CAUT Staff

More than two years after Laurentian University filed for bankruptcy protection under the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act (CCAA), the repercussions are still being felt by current and former academic staff, students, and the Sudbury community.

CAUT marked this anniversary by urging the Liberal government to follow through on its promise to exclude public post-secondary institutions from the CCAA. Though legislation has been introduced in both the House of Commons and Senate, it is unlikely that either will be passed into law without government support.

As part of this ongoing campaign, CAUT is calling on members and the public to send letters to the Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry urging him to back legislation that would exclude public post-secondary institutions from the CCAA, action promised by the Liberals in the last election.
