Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act

Version of section 126 from 2009-09-18 to 2024-05-14:

Marginal note:Who may examine proofs

  •  (1) Every creditor who has filed a proof of claim is entitled to see and examine the proofs of other creditors.

  • Marginal note:Worker’s wage claims

    (2) Proofs of claims for wages of workers and others employed by the bankrupt may be made in one proof by the bankrupt, by someone on the bankrupt’s behalf, by a representative of a federal or provincial ministry responsible for labour matters, by a representative of a union representing workers and others employed by the bankrupt or by a court-appointed representative, and that proof is to be made by attaching to it a schedule setting out the names and addresses of the workers and others and the amounts severally due to them, but that proof does not disentitle any worker or other wage earner to file a separate proof on his or her own behalf.
