Alter Ego – Corporate Veil

McKercher v. Renovation Store Ltd. 2015 Alta QB

Homeowners hired a renovation contractor from hell. The written part of the contract did not specify the names of the parties although it referred to the corporation on its letterhead. The judge found that the individual behind the corporation was also liable for damages because the judge decided that the contract, which did not include an “entire agreement clause,” contained both oral terms and written terms and that the individual’s representations of competence formed part of the contract.
