WANG v ALBERTA (HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION), 2022 ABQB 99
10.31: Court-ordered costs award
11.21: Service by electronic method
This Decision was a reconsideration of a request for costs by the Applicant who successfully set aside the Decision of the Alberta Human Rights Commission to summarily dismiss his human rights complaint against his former employer, the Alberta Energy Regulator ("AER").
The Applicant took issue with the Court emailing a Costs Decision to him. However, the Court noted that the Applicant’s materials and submissions filed in support of the initial decision included his email address in the “Address for Service and Contact Information and Party Filing this Document”. As such, the Applicant objectively indicated he was prepared to receive service by email pursuant to Rule 11.21. The Court also noted that the Applicant was allowed the opportunity for additional submissions and an opportunity to obtain the AER’s submissions if he had not received them. The Court held the Applicant had been treated fairly.View CanLII Details
