A Video of the Limitation Act Transition Rules (Part 2)

Transition Rules (Part 2)

This video explains the transition rules in British Columbia's new Limitation Act. The Limitation Act, which came into force on June 1, 2013, specifies how long a person has to bring forward a civil lawsuit, if no other statute contains a more specific time period. This video examines how the transition rules apply to a plaintiff's claim against a doctor (or hospital or hospital employee) that would have been governed by the six-year ultimate limitation period under the former Limitation Act.
