Book Spotlight - The Law of Limitations, 4th edition

Posted by Peel Law Association on 26 January 2024


Information provided on LexisNexis' website:

In this comprehensive treatise, The Honourable Mr. Justice Graeme Mew, Debra Rolph and Daniel Zacks offer expert commentary that begins with the general legal principles and history underlying time limitations in all jurisdictions across Canada, as well as an outline of the historical pressures that shaped this important legal area. The authors then shift the focus to an analysis of limitation periods specific to personal actions, actions involving real property and the limitations associated with specific parties such as proceedings by and against the government. Finally, they explore the impact of The Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and in particular, how the section 15 equality guarantee has affected the application of limitation periods for different classes of litigants.

What’s New In This Edition

  • Significant changes to the Ontario Limitations Act, including amendments to sexual assault charge provisions
  • An examination of new case law throughout Canada that must be considered when interpreting existing legislation
  • Completely new limitations legislation in Manitoba
