Prior to COVID 19, many lawyers (particularly millennials) would have described the Ontario civil justice system to have been stuck in the stone ages. Lawyers were still required to file all court documents and material in paper and were still sending faxes to one another to serve materials. Once the pandemic arose, and the courthouses and offices virtually closed, the Ontario government was forced to modernize and finally bring itself into the 21st century and embrace technology.
As we all know, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on the global and Canadian economy. The federal and provincial governments, and private and public corporations managed, to a certain degree, the immediate solvency of individuals by allowing for wage/unemployment benefits, rental abatements, mortgage deferrals, suspension of limitation periods, suspension of civil litigation procedural timelines and a moratorium on evictions. Many of these programs, orders and procedures have now expired though. It is therefore likely that insolvencies will increase over the next several months and more individuals will begin defaulting on their mortgages.
