Class Actions

Class actions have been a significant part of the litigation landscape in Saskatchewan since 2001, when class proceedings legislation was first passed in Saskatchewan.

We successfully defended the first certification applications heard in Saskatchewan, and have represented defendants in numerous class actions ever since. 

We have represented clients and defended class action claims in a wide variety of contexts, including:

  • Professional negligence.
  • Product liability.
  • Pharmaceuticals and biotechnology.
  • Lotteries and gaming.
  • Privacy and data loss.
  • Securities.

We have experience with all aspects of class action practice, including:

  • Jurisdiction and preliminary challenges.
  • Certification hearings.
  • Common issue trials.
  • Settlement approval hearings.
  • Appeals.

We are also regularly retained as agents for law firms in other jurisdictions in relation to class action proceedings commenced in Saskatchewan.
