BACKGROUND

The 260 Wellesley Class Action sought compensation to eligible persons who on January 22, 2019 were tenants at 260 Wellesley (the “Building”) or were present in the Building on January 22, 2019 (the “Class Members”). The plaintiffs alleged that the owners, landlords and agents of 260 Wellesley Street East (together, the “Defendants”) did not take proper care of the Building, which resulted in the flood and power outage on January 22, 2019.

The Defendants have agreed to pay the all-inclusive sum of up to $935,000.00 in full and final settlement of all claims, including Class Counsel fees and Claims Administration Fees, in return for comprehensive release from the Class and the Ontario Ministry of Health, and a dismissal of the class action. The Settlement is a compromise of disputed claims against the Defendants without any admission of liability by them.

Eligible Class Members may now submit a claim to receive a portion of the Settlement Amount.


AM I A MEMBER OF THE CLASS?

The proposed settlement includes all persons who, on January 22, 2019 were tenants at 260 Wellesley (“Resident Class”) and all other visitors of tenants who were present at the Building on January 22, 2019 (“Visitor Class”).
