Volochay v. College of Massage Therapists of Ontario, 2012 ONCA 541 has useful language on “adequate notice”:
 Adequate notice is a fundamental component of fairness at common law. It ensures that individuals affected by a decision have sufficient information and a reasonable opportunity to answer the case against them. Section 25(5) of the Code, which required the Registrar to give Volochay notice of the complaint, codifies this rule of natural justice and statutorily imposes a duty of procedural fairness on the College, even at the investigatory stage of its processes. That it does so no doubt reflects the potentially serious consequences for a member who is under investigation.
