Manitoba Revera Class Action


This action is being brought on behalf of the individuals and families of individuals who are/were a resident at Maples Personal Care home and contracted COVID-19.

About the Class Action

Maples is a personal care home with a capacity for up to 200 residents. On or about October 18, 2020, staff at Maples identified a resident that resided on the second floor as having symptoms indicative of COVID-19.  On October 20, 2020, test results for this resident confirmed that they were positive for COVID-19. On October 20, 2020, an outbreak was publicly declared at Maples by the WRHA and Manitoba’s Public Health.This outbreak lasted until January 12, 2021 when the outbreak was declared over by the WRHA and/or the Province of Manitoba. 

During the outbreak period, 157 residents of Maples had tested positive for COVID-19 and at least 56 residents have since died from complications of COVID-19.

Further at least 73 staff of Maples tested positive for COVID-19 during the outbreak period and were required to be absent from their staffing duties at Maples for various periods of time while they recovered.  In addition, several other staff of Maples were required to be absent from their duties during the outbreak period in order to self-isolate, or otherwise were absent on sick leave.

As a result of the staff absences, Maples suffered significant and critical staff shortages and was unable to ensure the basic care needs of the residents were met and were unable to ensure the safety of the residents and control or limit the spread of COVID-19 amongst the residents and staff.
