The general rules are set out at s. 3, which sets a two-year limitation period for civil actions. This clock starts ticking from the date you knew, or ought to have known, that: (1) an injury occurred; (2) the injury was attributable to the defendant's conduct (i.e. a branch of government or government official); and (3) that the injury warranted bringing a proceeding. Aside from the general rule, there is a “drop-dead” date of 10 years after the claim arose.
Special rules apply in the case of minors or people under a disability. If you think these special rules apply to your situation, you should review the Limitations Act and speak with a lawyer (here).
