Enclosures Direct Inc. v. Google, Inc., 2018 ONSC 6089

Pursuant to Rule 16.02 of the Rules of Civil Procedure, service of an originating process on a corporation may be effected by leaving a copy with an officer, director or agent of the corporation or with a person at any place of business of the corporation who appears to be in contral or management of the place of business. In this case, the court held that personal service of a receptionist at the corporation’s place of business was insufficient as she was not an “officer, director or agent” and there was no evidence to support a finding that the receptionist was in control or management of the place of business.
