ONTARIO EXPROPRIATION ASSOCIATION ANNUAL CASE LAW UPDATE - 2016
Over the past year, Canadian courts and tribunals have provided expropriation practitioners with guidance on a range of timely issues. Decision-makers have considered and commented on pertinent topics such as compensation and valuation methodology, the abandonment processes and offer-back obligations of expropriating authorities, and the ever important issues of statutory interest and costs. Also notable this year are developments in the law on de facto expropriations and regulatory takings; and the limits of provincial-federal jurisdiction concerning the expropriation of property designated for a federally regulated project.
A select summary of the cases is presented below in chronological order, based on the date the decision was issued. For reference, sub-headings containing a brief summary of the issues are also provided.
