Toth and Brousse v. Her Majesty the Queen Class Action

A class action is a court case in which one or more persons, called the representative plaintiff(s), make a request to the court on behalf of all persons who share the same problem or complaint. Persons sharing the same problem are called class members. Once a class action is authorized, or certified by the court, the representative plaintiffs become actively involved in the case on a day-to-day basis. Other class members are not required to do anything but can get information on the progress of the case. A class action ends in settlement or after a trial. Any settlement must be approved by the court. If the the case is resolved favourably to the class, class members may obtain a right to compensation. The amount of the compensation will be determined by the settlement, as approved by the court, or after a trial.

MIchel Drapeau Law Office (MDLO) was previously involved in a class proceeding brought by Raymond Toth on behalf of about 15,000 veterans who were denied certain disability pension benefits. The proceeding was successfully resolved in a settlement approved by the Federal Government of Canada (see menu item above, marked TOTH V. HMQ).

Michel W. Drapeau and Joshua M. Juneau are working in collaboration with Gowling WLG and other Canadian law firms, on a proposed class action (Toth and Brousse v. HMQ) concerning an accounting error in the calculation of disability awards and pensions by Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC). The error went undetected for many years and ended up shortchanging about 250,000 veterans, including sailors, soldiers and aviators, as well as members of the RCMP. A Statement of Claim was jointly filed by Gowling WLG and Michel Drapeau Law Office on behalf of the proposed representative plaintiffs. http://mdlo.ca/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/TOTH-BROUSSE-STATEMENT-OF-CLAIM-Issued-Entered-18-JAN.-19-TOR_LAW....pdf
