C. LIMITATIONS ACT (ONTARIO)
The limitations law of Ontario underwent a thorough and exhaustive revision about twenty years ago and is now mostly dealt with under the Limitations Act SO 2002 [this is a current version of the Act, not necessarily a 15 March 2020 version]. With those amendments, the general limitation period governing Ontario lawsuits was reduced to two years (from a prior six year limitation).
