  • LinkedIn

On September 1, 2015, the new NS Limitation of Actions Act – the legislation that determines the limitation period (time limit) in which a lawsuit must be started in relation to a NS claim – will take effect. The Act will include two further changes the NS government made to the version of the Act it passed into law: it will not apply to equitable claims by Aboriginal peoples against the Crown; and its exemption for certain sexual assault claims will now be retroactive.
