Crown Ward Class Action - Were you a Crown Ward any time on or after January 1, 1996 until March 30, 2017?
Some former Crown Wards filed a class action law suit against the Government of Ontario claiming that the Government of Ontario had a duty to consider and, where appropriate, seek compensation for physical or sexual abuse they experienced before or while a Crown Ward but did not do so.
The Government of Ontario has agreed to a proposed settlement for the class action. The settlement is conditional on the approval of the Court.
The settlement applies to:
persons who were alive as of January 22, 2012; and,
were Crown Wards in Ontario at any time from the period on or after January 1, 1966 until March 30, 2017; and
suffered physical or sexual assault before or while a Crown Ward.
