Asking for money from the Huronia, Rideau, and Southwestern Regional Centre class action settlements
Recorded on March 31, 2014 - There were three class action lawsuits about abuse of people labeled with intellectual disabilities who lived at the Huronia, Rideau, and Southwestern Regional Centres. Those lawsuits have now settled and there is money for some people who lived there. They must file a Claim Form to ask for this money. Family members and support persons may fill in the form for them. There will be only 120 days to file the Claim Form once the claims process begins. This webinar reviews the claims process, how to fill in the Claim Form, and issues that may come up when filling in the Claim Form.
Important notice: The deadlines for filing claims that are stated in this webinar have changed. All the other information in the webinar is correct.
People who lived at Huronia, Rideau or Southwestern, now have until November 30, 2014, to send in the Claim Form. You can ask the Ministry of Community and Social Services for your file from Huronia, Rideau, or Southwestern. If you ask for the file by August 5, then the Ministry is supposed to send it to you by October 5.
