Here is your daily LawFact from Wise Law for Monday March 21, 2016. Today we are talking about Civil Litigation.

A video posted by @wiselaw on

Under Ontario’s court rules, parties to all lawsuits commenced in Toronto, Ottawa and Windsor are required to attend at mandatory mediation to attempt to achieve settlement. Approximately 45% of cases settle at mediation.

If all parties agree, mediation may also be conducted in lawsuits commenced outside Toronto, Ottawa and Windsor, but mediation is not mandatory outside these three jurisdictions.
