Microsoft Class Action Settlement Is Available In Canada….. This Is Not A Joke

An unexpected new National Class Action Settlement has been announced. From a consumer standpoint, it is the single largest class action in the history of Canada. Naturally, many are questioning if this is indeed a legitimate campaign. The answer is a resounding yes after doing some research on this.

Here’s the deal.

As part of a nation-wide legal settlement, Microsoft has agreed to reimburse Canadians for their old PC software. If you bought PC versions of eligible Microsoft software, like Windows, Office, Word, Excel, or MS-DOS between 1998 and 2010, you should be eligible for compensation. You could receive up to $250 in cash for individual licences or up to $650 in vouchers for Volume Licences, without proof of purchase. All you need to do is fill out the online claim form and attest it to be true.

Microsoft denies any wrong-doing and has not admitted liability.

Canadians are invited to visit to see if they meet the criteria for eligibility. If they do, a claim must be submitted by September 23, 2021.

UPDATE: Some people asked for some more detail. So here it is. The class-action lawsuit alleged that Microsoft and Microsoft Canada were involved in a conspiracy to illegally increase prices for the company’s products. Microsoft agreed to the settlement but denies any wrongdoing and has not admitted liability.
