Nursing Home Class Action Intake Questionnaire

The class action has already been commenced with 6 Representative Plaintiffs (those named on the Statement of Claim) on behalf of all those residents at a Revera or Sienna owned or managed long term care home during the Covid19 pandemic, as well as on behalf of their families. Please note that due to the overwhelming volume of calls we receive and the fact that there are thousands of prospective class members, we regret that we are not always able to return individual calls or emails. Pursuant to the Class Proceedings Act, which is the legislation governing class actions in Ontario, we communicate with, advise, and take instructions from the Representative Plaintiffs.

The information you provide will allow us to add you to our database. Class actions can take many years to reach a conclusion. You are automatically part of the class unless you choose to opt out and retain a different lawyer. You can opt out later even if you sign up with us.

You are not entering into a retainer with our firm, as the class representatives have already done so. If the matter settles or is successful at trial, our fees are determined by the court in accordance with the Class Proceedings Act.

Signing up with us does not guarantee any particular outcome for you or the class. The action has just commenced and while we are optimistic that the case will have a successful outcome, it is too early to discuss any likely outcomes or dollar amounts.

By submitting this form, you will be added to our database and receive periodic updates as the case progresses. Our normal aim in class actions is to provide email updates every 3 months.

Your Information

Family member/resident’s information

The latest media reports show a staggering number of deaths in Canada are linked to long-term care homes or facilities. The elderly are some of the most vulnerable members of our society and highly susceptible to the devastating effects of this virus.

This specific pandemic has illuminated the shortfalls within our nursing homes that have been going on for years. Many feel helpless as they watch friends and family members experience the brunt of these shortfalls. Many also feel as if these organizations are not providing the public with the full picture of what is going on including staffing and funding shortfalls, as well as health standards that aren’t being met. While inspections of these facilities do take place, there can be changes from the last time one  took place to present day. This creates quite a cause for concern.
