On July 31, 2012, the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal (CHRT) endorsed the settlement between the Government of Canada and all Medical Adjudicators. This settlement addresses all outstanding issues related to human rights complaints filed in 2004. For more information, you can view the CHRT Order and the Memorandum of Agreement.

If you worked as a Medical Adjudicator for the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) Disability Program between March 1, 1978, and September 30, 2011, or you supervised medical adjudication work, you may be entitled to compensation under this settlement, even if you have never filed a complaint.

To obtain potential compensation under this settlement, you must provide the following information to Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) by December 31, 2013:

  • Full name (during period of work, and present, if different)
  • Preferred current mailing address (either work or home)
  • Preferred email address (either work or home)
  • Home phone number
  • Current office address, if applicable
  • Start and end dates of work as a Medical Adjudicator in the CPP Disability Program

Please send this information by email to NC-MA-Settlement_Entente-EM-GD@hrsdc-rhdcc.gc.ca or by mail to:

Director General, Operations Service Centre - National Headquarters
Place du Portage, Phase IV
140 Promenade du Portage
Floor 0, Workstation 0B098
Gatineau QC  K1A 0J9

If you are one of the named complainants in this human rights case, you do not have to provide your information to ESDC.

If you are a family member, or executor, of a medical adjudicator who has passed away, you may be able to make a claim on his or her behalf. Please provide us with the full name and period of work for the medical adjudicator who has passed away.

Note: If you want legal guidance on how to proceed, you may wish to consult with a lawyer, as ESDC cannot provide legal advice.

This is to inform you that Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) has consulted with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). The CRA has determined that the amounts paid under sections 5.1 and 5.2 of the Settlement between the Attorney General of Canada (representing the Treasury Board of Canada and ESDC) and the complainants are taxable.

In order to comply with the Income Tax Act, ESDC will be deducting tax from the amount you would receive under the Settlement (sections 5.1 and 5.2). Please contact the CRA if you require more information on amounts that are determined to be taxable.
