Enforcement of Non-money Judgments from Outside the Province

A party who has obtained a judgment in one province may find that it is not enforceable elsewhere in Canada and may, depending on a variety of factors, be required to bring an entirely new action in the province where enforcement is sought. This project identifies and discusses a significant number of threads of jurisprudence and legal policy that suggests a scheme for the inter-provincial enforcement of non-money judgments that is appropriate for adoption in British Columbia.
