Important Announcement (November 2021)

Appeals from the Claims Administrator's decision are ongoing. On January 6, 2021, the Ontario Court ordered the Claims Administrator to reconsider certain claims. On June 25, 2021, the Claims Administrator issued revised decision letters to affected Class Members. Some Affected Class Members have appealed from the revised decision letters. Those appeals are currently before the Court for determination. 

The remainder of the settlement funds cannot be distributed until appeals are resolved. Please continue to check this website for updates.

The Ontario Court approved an interim distribution to approved class members who will receive the minimum $20 payment. These $20 payments were sent by e-transfer or cheque depending on the information indicated in the claim form and began being sent August 21, 2020.

If the value of your claim currently exceeds $20 you were not eligible to receive payment in the first distribution. A second distribution to remaining approved Class Members will occur after all appeals are completed.
