Law Commission of Ontario Consultation Paper on Class Actions

The Law Commission of Ontario has published a consultation paper on class actions.

From the press release:
"The LCO review is the most comprehensive assessment of Ontario’s Class Proceedings Act since it came into force more than 25 years. Since that time, class action litigation has grown dramatically in volume, complexity and impact in Ontario and across Canada."

"The LCO’s project will:
  • Analyze the experience with class actions in Ontario; and,
  • Provide an independent, principled and practical analysis of class actions from the perspective of access to justice, judicial economy, and behaviour modification."
"The Consultation Paper seeks advice from a broad range Ontarians, including class members, the legal profession, legal organizations, governments, public and private organizations, academics and any others who have an interest in class actions. Formal public consultations conclude in mid-May. The project expects to release its final report in late 2018. "
