The plaintiffs are bringing an application to determine the following preliminary issues of law prior to the common issues trial:
(a) did Canada owe a duty of care to the Resident Class?
(b) did Canada owe a fiduciary duty to the Resident Class?
(c) if so, when did those duties arise and what was the extent of those duties?
This application is being pursued to substantially dispose of the issues to be determined in the action.
