Can a court extend the deadline for an opt-out form?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Dominguez v. Northland Properties Corporation, 2013 BCSC 468 (CanLII):

In Robinson v. Rochester Financial Limited, 2010 ONSC 5116, the court was concerned that the opt-out notices did not “reflect an informed decision by the persons who signed them”. In that case, the opt-out form had been signed and dated even before the notice of certification had been mailed out. They were also forwarded from a single fax machine and originated from someone related to the defendants. In that case, the court addressed those concerns by extending the opt-out deadline: paras. 3-6.
