Die Class Proceedings Act van Ontario — ’n voorbeeld van wetgewing vir die regulering van Suid-Afrikaanse groepsgedingvoering
In 1995 and 1998 the South African Law Commission proposed the promulgation of legislation to govern class action proceedings. The Class Proceedings Act of Ontario was one of the sources consulted by the Commission. According to the commission this piece of legislation played a valuable role in their recommendations. This contribution discusses this act as an example of legislation which may usefully be consulted in the drafting of a procedure to govern class actions in South Africa.
