1702108 Ontario Inc. v. 3283313 Canada Inc., 2016 Ont CA

Section 13(1) of the Limitations Act, 2002 re-starts a limitation period when “a person acknowledges liability in respect of a claim for payment of a liquidated sum…”. The acknowledgement must be clear and unequivocal. It must acknowledge the amount owing. A response that proposes to negotiate a settlement, without admitting liability or the amount, is not such an acknowledgement.
