Structuring a Cross-Border Construction Financing

Federated Press 8th Construction Financing Course

January 16, 2012

This presentation reviews considerations for US lenders in Canada in terms of the Bank Act, the Income Tax Act, and the Canada-US Tax Treaty, as well as other statuatory considerations.  It then provides an overview of the Canadian infrastructure market, outlines a 'typical' financing structure, and then discusses lenders' enforcement rights and cross-border insolvency issues.

Presented by Bruce Darlington at the Federated Press 8th Construction Financing Course, with contributions to the presentation content from Lindsay Krauss and Ian Bendell.
