What is the Desjardins Data Breach Class Action About? 

The Desjardins Data Breach Class Action alleges that Desjardins Group failed to protect consumer information during a 2019 data breach. This breach reportedly compromised sensitive personal information of nearly 9.7 million Canadians, leading to legal action against Desjardins for not taking adequate cybersecurity measures to prevent such breaches.

How Can I Make Sure To Never Miss A Settlement Claim? 

Let us notify you of all new class actions and when they are open to claims:

Am I eligible to get a payout in the Desjardins Class Action? 

Eligible class members include current and former Desjardins members in Canada whose personal information was affected by the 2019 data breach. This encompasses two subclasses:

Subclass 1: Class members who suffered lost time due to the breach. *Note: Deadline to claim for subclass 1 was April 20, 2023. 

Subclass 2: Class members who experienced identity theft as a result of the breach.

Is Proof of Purchase Required in Order to File A Claim? 

Yes, proof is required depending on the subclass:

  • Subclass 1: For less than three hours of lost time, no documentation is needed. For more than three hours, a description of all compensable actions completed is required.

  • Subclass 2: Documentary evidence confirming the identity theft is needed. If the identity theft was discovered after Dec. 14, 2022, proof of enrollment in a credit-monitoring service offered by Equifax or TransUnion before this date is required.

How Much Money Can I Get? 

Potential awards vary:

  • Subclass 1 members are eligible for up to five hours of lost time at a rate of $18 per hour, for a maximum payment of $90.
