A class action lawsuit against the Ontario government has been settled. The suit was brought by former residents of an institution for the developmentally disabled.

This morning’s $35 million settlement includes an apology from the government.

The maximum payout to each recipient will be $42,000 and applies to those institutionalized in Orillia’s Huronia Regional Centre between 1945 and 2009.

Many of the former residents are of advanced age or dying and the suit alleged that they suffered almost daily humiliation and abuse at the facility – which Ontario operated for 133 years.
