Condo Lawsuits – New Protocols for Snow and Ice Injuries

Joseph Salmon
Publication date:
December 28, 2020
Article Summary: 

Bill 118, which received royal assent on December 8, 2020, changes how lawsuits arising out of snow and ice injuries can be brought. The plaintiff must provide written notice of the claim within 60 days of the injury and must be served or sent by registered mail to the occupier or contractor employed by the occupier. The reduction from 2 years to 2 months is significant. Condominium corporations and management should pay attention to the changes to insurance premiums, limiting claims, and personally serving contractors and other occupiers. Additionally, condo corporations must document any injuries and make sure all staff are aware of the notice and timing requirements. A written policy should be prepared to explain these changes.
