Champlain Avocats (Montréal, Québec), in collaboration with Evolink Law Group (Burnaby, British Columbia), are counsel in a proposed international class action against Air Canada before the Superior Court of Quebec.
In a recent decision, the Superior Court dismissed Air Canada’s request to suspend this action (Benamor c. Air Canada, 2018 QCCS 144). The authorization hearing is expected to take place in the coming months.
This proposed class action is on behalf of consumers around the world that purchased an Air Canada flight pass that had expiry dates and extra fees. The class action seeks compensatory and punitive damages against Air Canada following the imposition of said expiry dates and extra fees for the flight passes, in violation of the Consumer Protection Act.
