Synopsis of the Class Action
This action was commenced in 2006 against the Government of Ontario. ONA represents members once employed with municipalities or other home-care service providers who had their employment transferred to Community Care Access Centres. These members transferred their pensions to the Hospitals of Ontario Pension Plan from various plans (OMERS, VON, and the FSA plan). ONA alleges that the Government made a promise that members would suffer no loss in pension benefits as a result of the transfer and did not keep the promise with the result that the class has suffered and will suffer losses.
