Punitive and Aggravated Damages in Canada

  • Donna Lea Hawley


The author surveys the law of punitive damages with reference to the conduct of the parties and discusses the types of causes of action giving rise to these damages, their pleading and their assessment. In· concluding that punitive damages are a proper consideration for tort law, the author sets out seven propositions which, if followed in defining the limits of punitive damages, would result in more uniformity in this area of the law.
