Ontario, Canada


The following excerpt is from Ernst & Young Inc. v. Aquino, 2021 ONSC 527 (CanLII):

The existence of badges of fraud creates a rebuttable presumption of the intention to defraud, defeat or delay creditors. The onus then shifts to those defending the fraud to adduce evidence to show the absence of fraudulent intent: Purcaru v. Seliverstova, 2015 ONSC 6679, 69 R.F.L. (7th) 388 at para. 57.
