Holland Christian Homes

Holland Christian Homes Class Action Lawsuit

Our team at Will Davidson LLP representing the families impacted by the tragedy at Holland Christian Homes is led by Gary Will, Managing Partner with the assistance of Gordon Marsden, Partner and Michael Reid, Senior Law Clerk. Holland Christian Homes is a group of 6 long-term care homes, located in Brampton, Ontario.


Kara Ferreira is the representative plaintiff in the action.  Kara lost her mom, Elise Arthur (pictured below) due to Covid-19 on April 28, 2020.

Kara had the following comments about her mom:

She was a loving mother, grandmother and sister who loved spending time with family and friends. She experienced some difficult times in her life but through her faith in God and love for her family, she persevered and rose about the turbulent waters.

“She enjoyed shopping, celebrating with family and music. Family sing-alongs are one of many fond memories she would reflect on. During her younger years she loved to cook, bake (famous meat pies and Christmas cookies), go camping, take boat rides, spend time at the beach and sitting down with a bag of Cheetos Puff Cheezies and watching a good movie. In fact, those Cheezies are something she asked for in her final days.”

“I consider it my duty to my mother to push for an investigation of this tragedy. Those that are responsible for this state of affairs must take responsibility and be held accountable.  That is the reason I decided to go forward with this action on behalf of all the residents of Holland Christian Homes.”


There are many well run long term care facilities in the province of Ontario.  In fact over half of the long term care facilities in Ontario have no deaths, according to Gary Will.  We at Will Davidson LLP salute those dedicated individuals and companies who are working so hard to keep these vulnerable residents safe and healthy in these difficult times.  At the other end of the spectrum there are a small handful of homes which have accounted for the majority of deaths in long term care facilities in Ontario.  Holland Christian Homes did not properly care for its vulnerable residents and this has resulted in dozens of grieving families.
