law of limitations book cover

We are excited to announce the recent publication, by Lexis-Nexis Canada Inc., of The Law of Limitations, Third Edition. The first two editions were written prior to the coming into force of the Limitations Act, 2002, so this new edition is the first to cover cases decided under the new Ontario regime.

Although Ontario cases receive the most coverage, the scope of the text is Canada-wide. Since publication of the second edition, Saskatchewan, New Brunswick, British Columbia, and Nova Scotia have fundamentally reformed their limitations regimes, and this edition brings readers up-to-date on the related jurisprudence.

The third edition contains new sections on wrongful dismissal, class proceedings, tolling agreements, and dispute resolution. It also has greatly expanded treatments of negotiable instruments, insurance contracts, assault and sexual assault claims, and limitations governing federal statutes.

LAWPRO takes special pride in this publication because Debra Rolph, our Director of Research, is one of the two authors added for the edition (the other is Daniel Zacks of Clyde & Co). In his Preface, lead author Graeme Mew describes Debra Rolph as a “living encyclopedia of the law of limitations.”

The Law of Limitations, Third Edition puts that encyclopedic knowledge at lawyers’ fingertips.
