The limitation period is about to run out on my matter. Am I going to miss my chance to file on time?

Mandatory limitation periods to commence civil and family matters in Provincial, Supreme, and Court of Appeal were suspended until March 25, 2021. As of March 26, parties must file and serve notices of appeal or applications for leave to appeal within required time periods. See the COVID-19 Notice to the public for more information.

Note: this DOES NOT apply to the Civil Resolution Tribunal, but may apply to other administrative tribunals. See the specific tribunal website to see if they have made any changes to limitation periods. To find the website see this directory of administrative tribunals. 

This DOES NOT apply to apply to mandatory limitation periods or other mandatory time periods under the Builders Lien Act.
