A nationwide settlement in the Organigram class action lawsuit has been approved by the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia.

The certified action alleged Class Members, who were represented by Halifax-based Wagners Law Firm, did not receive the product they had bargained for and that they should therefore be provided with a return of the purchase price.

The settlement applies to all those who purchased medical cannabis from the Moncton-based company that had been voluntarily recalled as of early 2019.

Organigram will pay up to a total of $2,310,000 CDN to Class Members for partial refunds less any refunds they have already received as well as to pay legal fees and expenses.

In addition, Organigram has agreed to pay the third-party costs of administering notice and the settlement.

Eligible Class Members will automatically receive letters via mail or email describing the amount of their individual payment under the settlement and will be paid by cheque or Interac e-Transfer.

In approving the settlement in Halifax on August 31, 2022, the Honourable Justice Ann E. Smith of the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia found that the settlement was fair, reasonable and in the best interest of the Class.

Justice Smith also approved legal fees, disbursements and applicable taxes.
