Does a motion judge's interpretation of a clause in a contract enforceable?

Ontario, Canada


The following excerpt is from Oudin v. Centre Francophone de Toronto, 2016 ONCA 514 (CanLII):

The motion judge’s interpretation of the contract is entitled to deference: see Sattva Capital Corp v. Creston Moly Corp, 2014 SCC 633 at para 52. As a result, we see no error in his conclusion that the clause is enforceable.
