New on CanLII: Civil Procedure and Practice in Ontario

There is an exciting new resource on CanLII that we wanted to flag for our Ottawa lawyers! Led by Professor Noel Semple of the University of Windsor Faculty of Law, the brand new Civil Procedure and Practice in Ontario is a comprehensive and entirely free guide to the Rules of Civil Procedure, Courts of Justice Act, and Limitations Act.

The title was written by 135 lawyers and experts in the province, including Ottawa lawyers Phedely Ariste (Gowlings), Kelsey Buchmayer (Gowlings), Cory Giordano (Supreme Advocacy), Corey Groper (DMG Advocates) and Guy Régimbald (Gowlings), and made possible with funding from the Law Foundation.
