Amendments to the Limitation of Actions Act now in effect

The amended Limitation of Actions Act was proclaimed September 1st, 2015.

The Act establishes a two-year basic limitation period (including motor vehicle claims) and creates an ultimate limitation period of 15 years. It does not apply to real estate matters, nor does it apply to sexual misconduct and abuse in an intimate or dependent relationship.

Lawyers are reminded to continue to track limitation dates carefully and to file their actions on time to avoid claims against them.
