2607380 Ontario, which is in the business of developing and operating a multi-purpose commercial building located at Burlington, Ontario (the "Nuvo Building"), obtained protection under the CCAA on February 26, listing approximately $27.6 million in liabilities, including $17.3 million to Meridian Credit Union and $4.5 million to Crossroads Christian Communications ("CCCI"). In November 2017, the company entered into an agreement with the general contractor, Maple Reinders, to renovate the Nuvo Building. However, in 2019, the renovation schedule began to incur significant delays when Meridian refused to fund the promised additional $2.0 million required to complete renovations. Consequently, the company was unable to pay Maple Reinders, who in turn could not make payments to its subcontractors. As of September 2019, all work at the Nuvo Building has ceased. The company currently requires the flexibility and breathing room provided by the CCAA process to pursue additional renovation financing and restructuring options that would allow for the completion of renovations to the Nuvo Building. Maynbridge Capital will be providing DIP financing during the CCAA proceedings. Richter was appointed monitor. Counsel is Stikeman Elliott for the company, Bennett Jones for the monitor, Gowling for Meridian, McCarthy Tétrault for Maynbridge Capital, and Weirfoulds for CCCI
