Chartwell Class Action Lawsuit
While all Canadians have experienced the fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic, seniors have been uniquely affected. In some jurisdictions, including Ontario, nursing homes, retirement residences, and long-term care facilities account for a disproportionate number of COVID-19 deaths. Unfortunately, it now appears that some of these deaths could have been avoided.
Will Davidson LLP is currently investigating the COVID-19 response of several long-term care facilities in Ontario, including homes owned and operated by Chartwell Retirement Residences, Canada’s largest seniors housing company. We are concerned that staff at some facilities were not adequately prepared to handle this catastrophic health emergency, and that negligent care led to avoidable health outcomes.
We are also investigating the following long-term care facilities and nursing home operators:
- Holland Christian Homes
- Ina Grafton Gage Home in Scarborough, Ontario
- Orchard Villa Long Term Care in Pickering, Ontario
- Oxford Living, the owner of Lundy Manor in Niagara Falls, Ontario
- The Village of Erin Meadows in Mississauga, Ontario
- Rosslyn Retirement Residence in Hamilton, Ontario
We have already announced class actions against Oxford Living and Orchard Villa, and are now considering a Chartwell class action as well. We encourage anyone who has been affected by a COVID-19 outbreak at a Chartwell-owned home, anyone who’s family member has been affected, or anyone who has information about negligent care to contact us as soon as possible.
The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed that Ontario’s long-term care system is underfunded and unable to cope with significant health emergencies. At Will Davidson LLP, we have been representing clients in nursing home negligence cases for many years. We also have a long history of success in class action lawsuits. Our team is ideally positioned to help those affected by COVID-19 outbreaks in Ontario nursing homes access fair and reasonable compensation for the damages they have incurred.

Unfortunately, the scope of the emergency in our province’s long-term care system was largely avoidable. Our Chartwell class action seeks to call attention to the substandard care that is rampant in Ontario’s nursing homes.
