Collective action :
Consolidation of the Constellations district
On March 30, 2011, the Court authorized the institution of a class action against the City of Lévis on behalf of a group of residents of the Constellations neighborhood, located in the St-Jean-Chrysostome sector. This proceeding sought the liability of the City of Lévis in connection with a problem of soil movement affecting properties in this sector.
Following the introduction of the procedures, the City of Lévis implicated a dozen developers and engineering firms. In 2014, it also participated in the establishment of an assistance program that allowed for the implementation of a partial settlement of the case. This partial settlement coincided with the implementation of a Geological Follow-up Program, the recent results of which have made it possible to look forward with confidence to a final settlement of the case.
We are therefore pleased to confirm that a comprehensive settlement agreement has been reached between the parties. This agreement will be submitted to the Tribunal for approval on June 11, 2020.
