Good faith in commercial relationships

(Supreme Court of Canada’s decision in Bhasin v Hrynew)

Do you own a business or franchise? Do you frequently enter into contracts with other commercial parties, including suppliers and contractors?

In Bhasin v Hrynew, the Supreme Court of Canada (SCC) established a general obligation of good faith in the performance of contracts and a duty of “honest performance”, which applies to all contracts and requires parties to act honestly with one another in relation to the performance of their contractual obligations. The SCC's decision was greatly anticipated and its impact was recognized immediately; however, the decision leaves much to consider in terms of the contexts in which the duty of honesty will apply, its minimum requirements, and what is expected of the parties.
