1001411 Ontario. Ltd. v. City of Toronto Economic Development Corporation

Irving Marks and Dominique Michaud represented the Toronto Economic Development Corporation ("TEDCO" a subsidiary of the City of Toronto) in defending an action brought by a tenant on the City waterfront who operated a film studio. The tenant alleged that its tenancy had been terminated in bad faith. A motion by TEDCO to strike out the allegations of bad faith on the grounds that there is no stand alone duty of good faith under Ontario law was successful and upheld on appeal in the Court of Appeal. The tenant amended the Statement of Claim to allege a contractual implied duty of good faith and this allegation was struck out on a subsequent motion. The court held that a commercial landlord has  no implied contractual duty of good faith to a tenant in relation to the termination of a lease.
