Everyone who owns, manages, or maintains a property in Ontario has a legal duty, under a provincial law known as the Occupiers’ Liability Act, to take all reasonable steps to keep the people who use the property safe. Depending on the circumstances, those held responsible include the owner, a tenant, or another person or company who might control or use the space. When these people fail to live up to their responsibilities, they put you in danger. Even if you are partially at fault for your fall, you can still make a successful claim against the occupier of the property for their share of responsibility.
