Ontario Procedural & Limitation Timelines Will Resume Once Again on September 14, 2020.

Updated: Feb 11, 2023

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most legal procedural and limitation timelines in Ontario were suspended retroactively back to March 16, 2020, by an emergency Order.

The emergency Order applied to most legal matters in Ontario, with the notable exceptions of the Construction Act, the Planning Act, the Family Responsibility and Support Arrears Enforcement Act and other Orders of the Court, or certain other specific contractual deadlines. However, as of September 14, 2020, the suspension of legal procedural and limitation timelines in Ontario will be lifted and all applicable legal time periods will resume as of this date. In this regard, all time periods and deadlines that were prescribed by law which were applicable before the COVID-19 pandemic occurred, will resume once again in Ontario.

Accordingly, it is of the utmost importance that you be aware of the timelines applicable to your matter as it can have a devastating effect on your case.
