REASONS FOR RULING
REID J. (Orally)
The plaintiffs seek to add Stanvit Estates Inc., c/o/b as Century Grove Homes, as a party defendant to this action. None of the existing defendants appeared in opposition to the motion. The proposed new defendant does oppose the motion.
By way of background, the plaintiff, Michelle Venditti, has sued the defendants as a result of injuries suffered in a slip and fall accident which allegedly occurred on September 10, 2010, at a construction site in Woodbridge, Ontario. The defendants include 2041320 Ontario Inc. as the owner of the premises, Century Grove Homes Design Studio Inc. as the builder, and 1403158 Ontario Ltd., operating as Construction Services, the agency that assigned the plaintiff to work for the builder.
The Statement of Claim was issued on September 7, 2012, within two years of the alleged accident. Shortly before the scheduled examinations for discovery all parties in June 2014, the plaintiffs received information through the documentary production by the defendant owner that the actual identity of the builder was, in fact, Stanvit Estates Inc., c/o/b as Century Grove Homes.
