When making a claim against the County for injuries that occurred on County Property or injuries that you believe were caused by Haldimand County, there are several pieces of legislation that are considered in determining the County’s responsibility. These include but are not limited to:
- Occupiers’ Liability Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. O.2
- Minimum Maintenance Standards O.Reg 239/02
- Negligence Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. N.1
- Municipal Act, 2001, S.O. 2001, c.25
The County has an obligation to provide services that meet a reasonable standard of care. If you have sustained a bodily injury for which you believe the County may be responsible, it is recommended that you inform the County as soon as possible.
For injuries involving roadways or sidewalks, the Municipal Act requires that notice be given to the Municipality within 10 days.
