Limitation Act Legislation

The new Limitation Act comes into force June 1, 2013. The new Limitation Act will make the law easier to understand and bring B.C.s law more in line with other provinces.

The Limitation Act sets out the time periods people have to start a proceeding to sue one another in the civil justice system. While many other laws set limitation periods, the Limitation Act sets the default regime, which means that unless another law sets the applicable limitation period, the Limitation Act applies.

The new Act is the result of extensive research and consultation, which began in 2007. The ministry received feedback from the public, consumer groups and business, legal and health care representatives.
