SERVICE OF PROCESS IN CANADA CAN BE DONE BY REGULAR MAIL
As injury attorneys in Buffalo and Western New York we represent many clients who have sustained injuries due to motor vehicle accidents involving someone from Canada. Sometimes the responsible parties live in Canada and must be served process in Canada. Those potential defendants must be served with a summons and complaint, but how is service in Canada from the U.S. to be properly completed?
According to Siegel’s Practice Review (February 2012) it is actually pretty simple. Regular mail will suffice. The Hague Convention and V&T Law Section 253 provide for such service, according to the Fourth, Third and Second Departments. See, New York State Thruway Authority v. Fenech, 2012 WL 489718 (Feb. 2012).
