BC Ombudsperson rules certain Covid related Ministerial Orders invalid: BC passes the Covid Related Measures Act

On June 22 the BC Ombudsperson released his report finding 2 Ministerial Orders were invalidly made.

This Briefing Note is intended as an update on the status of those Ministerial Orders pertaining to limitation periods and protection from liability, under this new statute.
