Transition Rules Flowchart for the new Limitation Act

The flowchart, published by the Ministry of Justice, is intended to support the transition to the Limitation Act that came in to force on June 1, 2013. A limitation period is the time limit for starting a lawsuit to enforce a legal right or remedy. Failing to start a lawsuit before the limitation period expires is fatal to a claim. Determining when a limitation period starts running is a complex question. If you have a legal claim and you are unsure about when the limitation period expires, seek the advice of a qualified lawyer. For more information contact: Paul G. Mendes at or call 604-685-4894.
