Max Doyle, Country Manager for Augusta (Canada) discusses recent developments in Canadian funding.

Plaintiffs in Canada won a victory last week with the approval of third party litigation funding in the Tim Horton franchisees case.

The growing acceptance of third-party funding in class actions as an alternative to the Class Proceedings Fund in Ontario is a step forward for Canada which is fast catching up with the more mature UK and Australia markets.

I’m delighted to be leading Augusta’s operations here in Toronto, these developments reinforce the rational for opening our Canadian office. Augusta has the ability to provide finance for small to medium sized claims as well as larger claims not only in class actions but across commercial litigation generally and we look forward to supporting the further development of litigation financing in Canada.
