What Is The Statute Of Limitations for a Car Accident in Ontario?
In most cases, the statute of limitations on a car accident in Ontario is two years. This is the deadline to commence a lawsuit to recover for your losses. If you attempt to file a lawsuit outside of this time limit, you will likely be unable to recover compensation.

Exceptions to the Statute of Limitations for a Car Accident
There is one notable exception to the statute of limitations. If the injured party is a minor child, they have until two years after their 18th birthday to file a lawsuit. This is known as “tolling” (i.e., pausing) the statute of limitations.
Note: In some cases, such as those involving the liability of a governmental entity the statute of limitations and other applicable deadlines can be significantly shorter.
