Theall Group on Insurance (Canadian Newsletter)

In this issue, we analyze two recent Ontario Court of Appeal decisions where the Court decided that an insurer was responsible to pay all costs associated with the defence of covered claims even if those costs furthered the defence of uncovered claims, and where the Court rejected a technical definition of “subcontractor”. We also review an important decision of the British Columbia Court of Appeal which found that an insurer acted in good faith when it rejected a settlement that would have reduced the insured’s uninsured liability. Finally, we consider the Supreme Court of Canada’s judgment that narrowly defined the “faulty or improper design” exclusion.
