Status Update as at January 28, 2020

At yesterday’s Court hearing, the Court granted Quest’s request for an extension of the stay of proceedings to May 29, 2020.  Additionally, the Court granted Quest’s request and approved an interim lending facility to Quest from RCM Capital Management Ltd.  Both requests are reflected in the Amended and Restated Initial Order (“ARIO”), which can be found under the Court Orders tab.  The application by Vanchorverve to advance their interim financing facility to Quest, and to remove and replace four board members, was dismissed by the Court.      

Today, Quest and Vanchorverve reached a consent agreement which resulted in an Order directing Vanchorverve (and any of its agents, employees, etc.) to restrain from communicating directly or indirectly with the current students, and/or the current faculty of Quest until the termination of the CCAA proceedings, or until further order of the Court.  A copy of the Order can be found under the Court Orders tab.  

Status Update as at January 24, 2020

A Court hearing is scheduled for Monday, January 27, 2020. At the hearing, Quest University Canada (“Quest”) will be seeking Court approval to extend the stay of proceedings until May 29, 2020. Additionally, Quest will be seeking Court approval on its interim financing requirement from RCM Capital Management Ltd. Quest’s application materials can be found under the Motion Materials tab.

Opposing Quest’s application is Vanchorverve Foundation (“Vanchorverve”), whose application seeks to remove and replace certain board members from Quest.   Additionally, Vanchorverve seeks to have Quest obtain their interim financing from Burley Capital Inc., instead of RCM Capital Management Ltd. Vanchorverve, if not successful in its application, also seeks to have the Court direct to have a sales and investment solicitation process order granted. Vanchorverve’s materials can also be found under the Motion Materials tab.  

The Monitor has posted its First Report to Court (found under the Monitor’s Reports tab), which speaks to the approvals that Quest is seeking from the Court, and the Vanchorverve application. A summary of the hearing and any orders made by the Court will be posted to this website shortly after the hearing.  

Status Update as at January 16, 2020

On January 16, 2020, Quest University Canada (“Quest”) filed for creditor protection pursuant to Section 3(1) of the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act, and PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc. LIT (“PwC”) was appointed Monitor.

As a result of the CCAA filing, all creditors are stayed from commencing or continuing any proceedings against Quest until January 27, 2020, (the “Initial Stay”), subject to any extensions of the Initial Stay that the Court might grant upon application by Quest.
