The CCAA was originally outside the purview of the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy. The superintendent had no role in establishing licensing requirements in respect of monitors, in investigating complaints, or in maintaining statistical records of CCAA proceedings. This is no longer the case. The 2005/2007 amendments have given the Superintendent of Bankruptcy administrative oversight in the conduct of insolvency professionals in respect of CCAA proceedings. The superintendent now has the same broad powers in respect of the licensing and investigation of monitors as exercised by trustees under the BIA.84

In addition, the superintendent is under an obligation to maintain a public record of CCAA proceedings.85
