Highlights of the 2024 Update include:

  • notable cases under the Small Claims Act and Rules:
    • it is not the responsibility of the trial judge, when dealing with a self-represented litigant, to advise them on how they should defend the action (Primex Industries Inc. v. Tatras Contracting Group Ltd., 2023 BCSC 818)
    • greater flexibility approach may be taken with respect to "medical reports," considered in context of the claim and the purpose of the Small Claims Act and Rules (Waller v. Nelson, 2023 BCPC 109) 
  • new and updated practice directions
  • the Civil Resolution Tribunal has jurisdiction to determine liability and damages for minor injuries resulting from motor vehicle accidents (Trial Lawyers Association of British Columbia v. British Columbia (Attorney General), 2022 BCCA 163)
