About the Class Action / Mass Tort and Compensation

Restaurant Brands International Inc. (“RBI”) is one of the world’s largest quick service restaurant companies and owns several chains including Tim Hortons. The Tim Hortons mobile application was purported to be tracking some users’ geolocation at all hours of the day as users went about their regular activities. Some of those users may have unknowingly agreed to the location tracking in their mobile device’s settings.

Users of the Tim Hortons mobile application had reasonable expectations that the Defendants of the proposed action did not intrude  on their private lives,  did not track  and record their movements  or location  data,  and  did not try  to  profile  their  personalities  and  analyze  their behaviours.  The Defendants violated these expectations.

The terms of the settlement agreement provides compensation in the form of a credit to be used for the purchase of one Hot Beverage and one Baked Good from any participating Tim Hortons store within Canada.

Please note that this credit can only be used once. The compensation will be credited directly into class members’ active App account or else by email to those who do not have an active account.

Frequently Asked Questions

A class action is a lawsuit which provides a method for a large group of people with common claims to come together to advance one claim on behalf of the group. Class actions are more efficient and cost-effective and allow for groups of people with common claims to gain access to the legal system and seek justice on their behalves.


Class actions are typically handled on a contingency fee basis. This means that the class counsel are only paid if the class action is successful at trial or settled. In the event that it is successful, class counsel fees may be paid by the Defendants owners and operators or out of either the settlement or judgment proceeds, as approved by the court.
