Mediation Precondition in Arbitration Clause is Key to Limitation Period

Posted on Apr 25 2018

Authors: Ben Hanuka and Anthony Pugh, Law Works P.C. In PQ Licensing S.A. v. LPQ Central Canada Inc., an April 5, 2018 decision of Court of Appeal for Ontario, the franchisor, PQ Licensing S.A., appealed a decision of a judge, who in turn dismissed the franchisor’s appeal of an arbitrator’s decision. The arbitrator ruled that the arbitration was not time-barred by the Limitations Act, 2002, because mediation was a pre-condition to the arbitration and the limitation period only started to run after the franchisor requested mediation.
