Revisiting five noteworthy expropriation cases from 2020

31 March 2021

Gowling WLG's national Expropriation Law Group identified a number of complex and compelling expropriation cases from across Canada in 2020 for discussion in our annual publication Expropriation Law 2020: A Year in Review.

This engaging video recap – hosted by John Doherty, partner and leader of the firm’s Expropriation Law Group – outlines five noteworthy expropriation cases. John will be joined by fellow team members Alexandre Sami, Emily McCartney, Tristan Neill, Carolina Campos, and Sahil Shoor, each of whom will outline the particulars of one of the key cases.

The five cases we've selected are:

  • Hydro-Québec v. Louise Matta
  • City of Edmonton decisions (various)
  • Nova Scotia IA Cases (Curry, et al)
  • Beniuk v. Leamington
  • 1085372 Ontario Limited v. City of Toronto

Acting for both expropriated owners and expropriating authorities, Gowling WLG's national Expropriation Law Group applies a creative, practical approach to a range of challenges — from informal negotiations to arbitration proceedings before administrative tribunals, including the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal and the courts.

Members of our team are routinely recognized by leading publications, including Best Lawyers in Canada and the Canadian Legal Lexpert Directory.
