In Ontario, dog owners are liable for damages if there dog bites or attacks a person or domestic animal. You can see the news story and video on CityNews that aired on November 15, 2016 here.
In Ontario, the Dog Owners Liability Act makes the owner of a dog liable for damages resulting from a bite or attack by the dog on another person or domestic animal. Where there is more than one owner of a dog that bites in Ontario, the law makes all owners jointly and severally liable for the damages caused by the dog.
It is significant that in Ontario, the liability of the dog owner does not depend upon knowledge of the propensity of the dog or fault or negligence on the part of the owner.
