The Ontario Paralegal Association and various other stakeholders meet with the Ministry of the Attorney General to provide feedback on the suspension of limitation periods, reopening of the justice system, and COVID 19.
Three options were discussed:
The suspension limitation period is linked with the State of Emergency. Once the State of Emergency is over, the suspension of limitation period is removed.
After the State of Emergency is lifted, the suspension of all limitation periods will last another 45 days.
After the State of Emergency is lifted, the suspension of all limitation periods will last another 90 days.
The Ontario Paralegal Association recommends Option #3 as it will give all paralegals and lawyers ample time to get everything in order.
The Ontario Paralegal Association is looking for feedback on either the options provided OR any other possible solutions. To provide feedback, you can leave a comment here or send an email to President George Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org.
