$200 Million Class Action Lawsuit by College Students

A class action lawsuit has been filed by two college students on behalf of other college students across Ontario against the province’s 24 community colleges of applied arts and technology, claiming that certain types of prohibited ancillary fees have been collected illegally.

The two students who launched the court challenge are acting as “representative plaintiffs” in a class action lawsuit that is seeking $200 million in compensation for every student who paid the illegal fees.

The Canadian Federation of Students, which represents more than 500,000 college and university students from coast to coast, and nearly 300,000 students in Ontario, helped the plaintiffs connect with their legal counsel and compile the background research for their case.
