PPSA (Personal Property Security Act) is a provincial legislation that governs priorities for the purchase and sale of moveable property where the creditor has a security interest in the property. The form of security interest that is granted over an item of property to secure payment by a debtor or performance of some other obligation is commonly referred to as a lien.
PPSA search reports indicate whether the personal property of a corporation, individual, business name or a motor vehicle identification number is encumbered and subject to the security interests of creditors. PPSA registrations enable creditors to register, modify, renew and discharge their interests on the respective personal property outlined above.
