Schedule 1 Facilities Class Action

The settlement agreement allows people to make claims without a personal resident file, but a resident file may help people in making a claim. If you want to get a copy of your resident file from when you lived at one of the institutions please contact:


Access and Privacy Office

Ministry of Community and Social Services

PO Box 978

77 Wellesley Street West

Toronto ON M7A 1N3

Toll free: 1-855-376-9886


The deadline to request resident files records from the Access and Privacy Office is September 27, 2016.  For requests received by the Ministry prior to this date, the Ministry is required to provide records, where they exist, by December 28, 2016.


The Ministry will make reasonable efforts to produce resident files requested after September 27, 2016, but there is no guarantee that records will be received before the claims deadline.


If you are requesting records it is in your best interest to do so before September 27, 2016.
