1. Interest is the return or consideration or compensation for the use or retention of money that is owed to another person;

2. interest must relate to a principal amount or an obligation to pay money; and,

3. interest must accrue over time: Saskatchewan (Attorney General) v. Canada (Attorney General), 1947 CanLII 32 (SCC), 1947 S.C.R. 394 at para. 47; Ontario (Attorney General) v. Barfried Enterprises Inc., 1963 CanLII 15 (SCC), [1963] S.C.R. 570, 42 D.L.R. (2d) 137 at para. 5.
