Limitations


Note: Limitations and Time Limit Suspension of 2020

The province imposed a six-month suspension for limitations starting 16 March 2020 and ending 14 September 2020. For this time it was as though time didn't run for these purposes.

Also imposed, but with a discretionary exemption by the judge or adjudicator, was a similar six-month suspension for any time limits [ie. "(a)ny provision of any statute, regulation, rule, by-law or order of the Government of Ontario establishing any period of time within which any step must be taken in any proceeding in Ontario, including any intended proceeding, ..."].

Reg 73/20: March 20, 2020 Order Made Under Subsection 7.1 (2) of the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act

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).
