United Parcel Service Canada Ltd ("UPS")
On February 19, 2007, Siskinds filed a class proceeding against United Parcel Service Canada Ltd. ("UPS") on behalf of Ontario residents and all other provinces (excluding BC and Quebec) with respect of the brokerage fee(s) charged on the shipment of goods from outside of Canada. The lawsuit further claims that UPS failed to obtain consumers’ consent to act as a customs broker; to disclose the existence and/or amount of the brokerage fee; and to provide consumers with the opportunity or disclose to them how to arrange for customs clearance by themselves.
On August 26, 2011, Justice Horkins ordered the action certified as a class action and partial summary judgment for the class. The defendant is currently appealing the decision.
