C. LIMITATIONS ACT (ONTARIO)

The limitations law of Ontario underwent a thorough and exhaustive revision about twenty years ago and is now mostly dealt with under the Limitations Act SO 2002 [this is a current version of the Act, not necessarily a 15 March 2020 version]. With those amendments, the general limitation period governing Ontario lawsuits was reduced to two years (from a prior six year limitation).

EDIT NOTES

. when considering /limitations for it's inclusion of stat provisions, think about the same issue for /SPPA, /evidence and more [it's a 'type' of Guide that requires distinct formatting ...] [also, use "(#)" to indicate when provision is quoted in the following link ...] -- and try for an elegant solution
