Developmentally Disabled Ontario Residents File Lawsuit Against Province

July 25th, 2014

Recently, a class-action lawsuit was filed against the province of Ontario on behalf of former residents of 16 provincially operated facilities for people with developmental disabilities.

The claims allege that internal safeguards meant to protect the residents from abusive staff and residents were not put into place following formal recommendations made directly to the province of Ontario.  These precautions were meant to assist in identifying, reporting and ending abuse in these 16 institutions.

One Ontario judge recently awarded a multi-million dollar settlement of a lawsuit to victims of two Ontario facilities for the developmentally disabled.  These two institutions are now closed.
