Class Actions



*********************** LOOKING FOR WITNESSES **********************

We are looking for witnesses who can testify for the trial concerning their experience during the 2019-2020 school closure. How did everything go with your children? Any support is welcome. Your testimony will have a direct impact on the outcome of the case and make a difference while providing an interesting experience of our judicial system. Write to us at [email protected] or call us directly at 514 866-3636. The trial will take place in 2023 or 2024.

*************Number of Opt-outs and Remedy Claimed at Trial********************

Based on the figures available to us after the-opt-outs have been factored in, *about* two-thirds of the parents remain on board with the case, despite the coordinated militant pressure campaign orchestrated by the schools, for which an appeal on this subject will take place next winter.

In addition, we wish to inform the parents that the final amount claimed at trial will be 22.5% of all tuition fees paid for the year 2019-2020, per child.

***********APRIL 13TH 2O22 UPDATE**************************

The Quebec Court of Appeal has accepted to hear an appeal of the recent Superior Court judgment validating the exclusions. Please see the QCCA judgment below.

***********FEBRUARY 19TH 2022 UPDATE**********************

The Superior Court has rendered its decision in the debate concerning certain messages sent by the schools. Please scroll down to download and read the decision (00- Jugement).

During the hearing, the number of class members (initially estimated at 47 000) was orally updated to the court based on the schools' own evidence as filed in the court record and the estimations of Class Counsel when the data was not available, which informs that the number of total members would be a little over 63 000. Following the exclusions, based on that number 62% of the total class members remain to pursue the class action.
