In response to the developing COVID–19 pandemic, Canadian courts have modified their operations, temporarily closed or introduced limited in-person hearings to urgent matters only, with some exceptions.
Please note that Ontario and Québec have suspended the running of limitation periods. To help our clients stay informed, and due to the detailed nature and different directions from each Province and Territory, we have summarized and attached the relevant links for ease of access to updated directions in real time.
The Dentons Litigation and Dispute Resolution group is available to answer questions and address concerns as the situation evolves. We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and will continue to keep our clients updated as the courts provide more information about their operations.
