The Toronto law firm of Koskie Minsky LLP has been engaged as Class Counsel in a proceeding against the Province of Ontario regarding lengthy waitlists for developmental services in Ontario.

The Amended Statement of Claim alleges that the issue of waitlists for desperately needed services has been a repeatedly identified issue for years and that Ontario has continued to ignore and failed to act upon the issue in any reasonable manner.

The claim alleges, among other things, that Ontario has been negligent and breached duties it owes to the class members under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, by virtue of these waitlists, some of which can last for years at a time because of a “broken system.”
