By amendment of S.O. 2002, chapter 24, section 26, Parts II and III of the Limitations Act (R.S.O. 1990, chapter L.15) were repealed. The remaining portion of the Act (the definitions and Part I) dealt exclusively with real property limitations. To reflect this narrowed scope, the Act was renamed the Real Property Limitations Act. A new Act, the Limitations Act, 2002, was enacted to deal with limitation periods other than those affecting real property.

The text of the Limitations Act (R.S.O. 1990), as it read before the amendment by S.O. 2002, chapter 24 came into force on January 1, 2004, has been included on this site as a historical version to the Real Property Limitations Act.
