The Supreme Court of Canada recently clarified and expanded the scope of the duty to act honestly in the performance of a contract (known as duty of good faith), as previously recognized in Bhasin v. Hrynew. In C.M. Callow Inc. v. Zollinger, 2020 SCC 45, the Court acknowledged that while the defendants did comply with the contractual specifications, it was the manner in which they exercised their right of termination that breached the duty of honest performance. The Supreme Court of Canada ruled that no contractual right can be exercised dishonestly and half-truths, omissions and silence can be a breach of that duty.
