Scope and Content

Series consists of records produced as part of the class action lawsuit filed by two former residents of the Huronia Regional Centre against the Government of Ontario to seek justice and compensation for abusive treatment suffered at the facility. The records are the documents produced and provided by each party to the other for the proceedings in accordance with civil procedural obligations under the Class Proceedings Act, 1992. These records are known as the "Schedule A" documents. On September 17, 2013, the case was settled. In the settlement agreement, "Schedule A" documents were ordered to be deposited at the Archives of Ontario for scholarly research purposes.

The records document the operations of the Huronia Regional Centre and treatment of its residents. Specific types of records include: media clippings and articles, government reports, cabinet documents, financial documents, facility operational documents, policy documents, correspondence, memoranda, meeting agendas, meeting minutes, briefing notes, directives, guidelines, agreements, notes, newsletters, log books, incident reports, guardianship documents, medical and behavioural reports, vocational and recreational documents, human resources records, discipline records, evaluations, academic reports, facility maintenance records, maps, programming videos, and public education videos.
