Here is your daily LawFact from Wise Law for Friday September 2, 2016. Today we are talking about Civil Litigation.
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.
