Law Commission of Ontario Class Actions Project

The Law Commission of Ontario (LCO) has launched a major class actions research project:

"The LCO’s class action project considers Ontario’s experience with class actions since the enactment of the Class Proceedings Act in 1993. The project has two main objectives:
  • Survey the experience with class actions in Ontario, and
  • Provide an independent and practical analysis of class actions from the perspective of their three objectives: access to justice, judicial economy, and deterrence.
The project will produce an independent, balanced, and authoritative report on class actions issues. The report may make recommendations for law reform where appropriate to do so."
Public consultations will begin later in 2017.

The last comprehensive review of class  proceedings in Ontario was in 1990.
