Case Report – FC orders party to generate and produce an accounting report

In this August 13th decision, the Federal Court rejected a party’s argument that it should not be compelled to create a record that does not exist and ordered it to generate and produce monthly financial statements from its accounting software program. Though the party did not retain copies of the specific reports requested, the Court held it was possible to generate them with minimal burden.
