Who is liable for your injury?
Under Ontario’s Occupiers’ Liability Act, municipalities and private property owners, including residential homeowners, are legally obligated to keep people reasonably safe from harm on their property. Failure to do so can result in individuals sustaining serious injuries for which the property owner is liable. Wet and uneven floors, poor lighting, cluttered and obstructed hallways and snow- or ice-covered entryways are the most common causes of slip and fall accidents.

Updated slip and fall regulations in Ontario
In January 2021, Ontario’s slip and fall regulations were updated. Previously, anyone injured in a slip and fall accident had two years from the date of the incident to serve the property owner, manager or landlord with a written notice of the accident. However, this grace period has been changed.
Under the new regulations, for a slip and fall on private property, you must now serve the owner with a written notice within 60 days of the incident. Additionally, if the incident took place on municipal property, you must now provide the city with written notice within 10 days.
