RAVVIN v CANADA BREAD COMPANY, 2020 ABCA 287
3.74: Adding, removing or substituting parties after close of pleadings
14.57: Adding, removing or substituting parties to an appeal
The Applicant applied to be added as a Respondent to an Appeal. The Court considered Rule 14.57, which permits a party or person to be added, removed or substituted as a party to an Appeal in accordance with Rule 3.74. The Applicant relied on Rule 3.74(2)(b), which allows a person to be added, removed or substituted as a party to the Action upon Application if the Court is satisfied that the Order should be made.
The Court granted the Application and held that the Applicant had a legal interest in the outcome of the proceedings, and it was in the interests of justice and efficiency that the Applicant be added as a Respondent to the Appeal. The Court confirmed that the Applicant’s interests could not otherwise be adequately protected in the circumstances.View CanLII Details
