In C.M. Callow Inc. v. Zollinger, the Supreme Court of Canada recently considered the extent of the duty of honest performance of contracts. In doing so, they explored concepts of giving regard to the legitimate contractual interests of one’s counterparty, an obligation to correct a false impression created through that party’s own actions, and Quebec civil law’s concept of abuse of rights. This developing area of the law is expected to be an area of increased litigation (and increased risk for your business) in the years to come.
Join Jesse Harper, Jon Wansbrough and Zohar Levy of Fasken's litigation group for an update and discussion on the duties of companies in the negotiation, performance, enforcement and termination of a contract in common law jurisdictions. The presentation will look at how this recent decision informs these stages where obligations of good faith can arise.
