Law Commission of Ontario Final Report on Class Actions

The Law Commission of Ontario (LCO) has released its final report, Class Actions: Objectives, Experiences and Reforms.

It is a comprehensive examination of the province's Class Proceedings Act. The LCO makes numerous recommendations to improve the workings of the Act:
"These recommendations address a broad cross-section of issues, including the process for initiating a class action, certification, settlement approval and distribution, counsel fees, costs and reporting on class actions. We believe our recommendations represent a necessary and important update to a significant piece of legislation that is now almost 30 years old."
More background about the entire class actions project can be found on the LCO website.
