Campeau, et al. v. Her Majesty the Queen
CRA Privacy Breach Class Action
Murphy Battista LLP has filed a proposed class proceeding related to the unauthorized disclosure to a third party of the personal and financial information of thousands of Canadians from their online accounts with the Government of Canada Branded Credential Service (“GCKey”) and the Canada Revenue Agency (“CRA”).
The information was disclosed to a third party during several cyber security incidents targeting GCKey and CRA accounts. The plaintiffs allege that the defendant was aware of cyber security concerns and was aware of vulnerabilities in its security software, both of which put at risk the personal and financial information contained in Class Members’ GCKey and CRA accounts. Despite these concerns and vulnerabilities, the defendant failed to take reasonable steps and precautions to prevent harm to Class Members.
Who does the class action affect?
The claim is brought on behalf of all persons whose personal or financial information in their Government of Canada Branded Credential Service account or their Canada Revenue Agency account was disclosed to a third party on or after March 15, 2020 (“Class” or “Class Members” to be further defined on the plaintiffs’ application for certification).
