Professional Conduct Decisions

What is a professional conduct decision?

An investigation into a trustee's professional conduct is initiated when there is information to suggest that the Licensed Insolvency Trustee (LIT) has not properly performed the duties of an LIT or there has been improper administration of an estate or lack of compliance with the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (BIA).

In some cases, the findings are sufficiently serious to support a recommendation for sanctions against the LIT's licence, per subsection 14.01(1) of the BIA, and may include cancellation, suspension, the imposition of conditions or limitations, a restitution order or other actions, as appropriate.

The professional conduct decision is deemed to be a decision of a federal board, commission or tribunal and may be judicially reviewed by the federal court.
