Class Actions


COMMENT

'Class actions' are governed in Ontario by the Class Proceedings Act, 1992 [see below], and federally by the Federal Courts Rules under the Federal Court Act [s.334.1-334.39, see below]. In essence they are a means of 'access to justice' by large groups of people who would not - individually - be financially able to advance litigation against one or several related defendants, typically corporate.
