This 1-volume reference is an essential litigation law guide to statutory time limitations contained in the various Statutes of British Columbia and the British Columbia Rules of Court for the commencing of an action, the bringing of an appeal and the instituting of various other proceedings and prosecutions.

Unique Organization

Two discrete sections help you to identify the applicable time limitation prescribed for commencing a prosecution, making a complaint, instituting a proceeding, suit, etc., quickly and easily:

a) Annotated BC Limitation Act

For ease of reference and quick access, the volume contains a fully annotated version of the complete Limitation Act, R.S.B.C. 1996, c. 266.

b) Limitation Periods by Subject

Covering topics ranging from "Aboriginal Law" to "Wills, Estates and Trusts Law" ("Youth Justice"), the subject index identifies the specific matter and issue, the applicable time period, and the time from which the period begins to run. Organized according to LexisNexis' Classification System, the index follows a simple-to-use format with topics organized alphabetically by subject area.


Each limitation period entry consists of:

  • A keyword paragraph based on LexisNexis' Classification System, which allows you to identify the type of matter, the relevant time period, and when the time period begins, all at a glance.
  • A reproduction of the relevant sections or parts of sections of the governing legislation applicable to the topic, in an readily accessible format.
  • Additional sections or parts of sections where relevant - to provide you with additional meaning or context.
  • Case digests referencing and/or interpreting the statutory provision - providing you with insight as to a section's application.
