Notice of Settlement Approval Hearing

A Class Action lawsuit was filed in the Nova Scotia Supreme Court in August 2018 regarding sexual abuse claims against priests of the Archdiocese of Halifax-Yarmouth.

A proposed settlement has been reached between the parties. If approved, it will make compensation available to individuals who allege they were sexually abused by a priest of the Roman Catholic Episcopal Corporation of Halifax or Roman Catholic Episcopal Corporation of Yarmouth.

If you opted out of the class action, the settlement will not impact you.

There will be a court hearing on November 14, 2022 to decide whether to approve the proposed settlement and counsel fees.
