Lawsuit attempt to help students recover tuition fees from M College, CDE College, CCSQ College dismissed


A lawsuit attempt that aimed to help international students recover tuition fees lost after the owners of M College in Montreal, CDE College in Sherbrooke, and CCSQ College filed for creditor protection has been dismissed. The law firm McCarthy Tétrault – which was appointed to represent student interests in the creditor protection process – had been seeking $17M in damages. Quebec Superior Court Judge David R Collier dismissed the application, reportedly saying that the court did not have the jurisdiction under the restructuring proceedings to grant the request. Amanpreet Kaur, who was a student waiting for a refund, said she lost her parents’ savings. “They paid my fees twice,” said Kaur, who had withdrawn from M College and attended postsecondary at another private college.
