Claims in Canada must either be settled, or proceedings must have been started within the limitation period which varies dependent on location by province or by provincial statutes. There is no general overarching Statute of Limitations applicable in Canada. Guidance on limitation should be obtained from a local lawyer who is experienced in that type of civil action. Limitation periods in Canada generally vary between one year and two years for most causes of action and the limitation period is usually strictly enforced. There may be exceptions to the general rule for infants and claimants who suffer from a mental or psychological condition. Failure by an individual or by an injury lawyer to comply with the time limit can mean that the opportunity to claim compensation may have been lost forever.
