deemed trust
A trust that is established by statute to be in effect even though there may not be any actual asset or monies held in that trust. For example, Revenue Canada in a bankruptcy or insolvency situation takes the position that it has a deemed trust covering source deductions that they claim rank even ahead of certain secured creditors.
