Important Announcement (October 2022)

Between November 2018 and March 2019, class members were able to apply for settlement benefits. Payments to approved class members were delayed as a result of certain class members appealing the outcome of their claims and a re-adjudication of certain claims.

Payments to approved class members started on October 28, 2022. All cheques were mailed on October 31, 2022. Interac e-Transfers will be sent in batches beginning October 28, 2022 and ending by November 18, 2022.

When you applied for settlement benefits, you were asked to answer one of five security questions:

Unless you have registered for automatic deposit of e-Transfers through your financial institution, your answer to that question is needed to deposit the e-Transfer into your account. An email was sent on November 3, 2022 (English) or October 27, 2022 (French) from [email protected] containing your answer. If you cannot find the email, please check your junk folder. If you enter the wrong answer four times your payment will be locked.

A previous distribution was made to class members who were entitled to the minimum payment of $20 regardless of the outcome of class member appeals.

What is a CRT?

A CRT (cathode ray tube) is a display device commonly used in televisions and computer monitors.

Who can receive a payment from the settlements?

Persons resident in Canada (individuals, businesses and governmental entities) can receive a payment from the settlements if they
purchased any of the following products, regardless of the manufacturer or brand, in Canada between March 1, 1995 and November 25, 2007:

CRTs for inclusion in televisions or computer monitors

You must complete and file a claim form by March 1, 2019.

How much money will I receive?

Claims will be valued based on three variables:
