Ontario: the limitation period in s. 51 of the SABS is not subject to discoverability

In Tomec v. Economical Mutual Insurance Company, the Divisional Court held that the limitation period in s. 51 of the Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule is not subject to common law discovery or the discovery provisions in s. 5 of the Limitations Act.  It is a “hard” limitation period in that it runs from a fixed event, which is the refusal to pay the benefit claimed.
