Class Action Lawsuit- Developmental Services Waitlist

A new class action lawsuit has been certified by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice related to the lengthy waitlists for developmental services in Ontario.

People fall within the Class definition, and are class members if:

They were alive as of April 10, 2015, they are eligible for ministry-funded adult developmental services and supports and funding, have been assessed by an application entity (DSO) and placed, at any point between July 1, 2011 to December 14, 2018, on any one or more of the service registries for:

  • (i) “residential services and supports”,

  • (ii) “caregiver respite services and supports” under the Services and Supports to Promote the Social Inclusion of Persons with Developmental Disabilities Act, 2008; and

  • (iii) “Passport” funding under the Ministry of Community and Social Services Act.

No action is required for people who are class members. More details are provided below.

As supporters, it is important that we provide this information to people, families, and trusted others so that they are informed and can make any decisions they wish regarding this class action.
