What is the test for bringing a review order in a personal injury matter?

Ontario, Canada


The following excerpt is from Chaltaf v. Dawood, 2019 ONSC 5097 (CanLII):

Review orders have a useful but limited role. A review order may be appropriate where there is a genuine and material uncertainty at the time of the original trial. This usually arises where the parties have not had the economic wherewithal to commence recovering from the disadvantages that flow from the marriage and its breakdown. A review order permits the party to bring a review without having to demonstrate a material change in circumstance, which is a stringent threshold: Leskun; Judd v. Judd, 2010 BCSC 153.
