Overview

Keywords: judgment; enforcement; service; forum non conveniens; cross vesting; limitation period; province; court; Morguard Investments Ltd. v. de Savoye; jurisdiction; foreign; Bank of Montreal v. Kim

A judgment requiring the payment of money can be filed in another province's courts, which allows a successful plaintiff to enforce the judgment in that jurisdiction. This project examines whether recent changes in the common law require immediate amendments to the Court Order Enforcement Act and the Limitation Act. The cases concern the issues of the reciprocal enforcement of judgments, limitation periods, and foreign judgments.
