Christopher Joe Crupi; Christopher Crupi & Associates Inc.
Directions for Removal of Conservatory Measures to Canada Post Corporation—November 3, 2011
What is a conservatory measure?
The Superintendent of Bankruptcy puts in place conservatory measures when a bankruptcy or insolvency estate needs protection. It might be in cases of trustee malfeasance or if serious wrongdoing on the part of a trustee puts estate files at risk. Conservatory measures may also be put in place if a trustee becomes ill or dies without a valid succession agreement. Finally, conservatory measures may be put in place if a trustee, for whatever reason, has allowed the administration of his or her practice to become substandard.
