Is a vicariously liable party bound by the same procedural considerations as the party at fault?

The following excerpt is from D. B. v. Parkland School Division No. 63 Saskatchewan, 2004 SKCA 113 (CanLII):

The principle that a vicariously liable party is bound by the same procedural considerations as the party at fault finds support in Doe v. O’Dell[30] where Swinton J. held that a diocese was not entitled to claim a limitation period which was not available to the priest.
