CPRI Class Action
The class consists of persons who were admitted to CPRI as inpatients during the period from September 1, 1963, until July 1, 2011, exclusive of any time for which an individual was an inpatient and resided in the Glenhurst or Pratten 1 units, and who were alive as of February 22, 2014.
The lawsuit alleged that between 1963 and 2011, the inpatients at CPRI suffered various harms, including injuries resulting from the wrongful acts of their peers, and that the Province owed a duty to supervise and failed to adequately ensure the safety of those individuals admitted. The Province denies these claims and a Court has not decided whether the Class or the Province is right. Instead, both sides have agreed to a settlement.
A Settlement Agreement was approved by the Superior Court of Justice on July 21, 2021.
