Nova Scotia: Immigrants To Be Paid A Whopping $30 Million

A Fair Settlement: The Executive Director of the Office of Immigrants, Elizabeth Mills is convinced that this settlement is just. The talked about projected class action court case was filed in the end of the year 2009 on behalf of Peter King, who moved to Halifax from the United Kingdom approximately five years back and had compensated for the mentorship program. Mills informed the reporters, “I think the proposed settlement is brilliant. The best part is that it is been dealt with and everybody will be content.”

The Peter King Role: As mentioned, the lawsuit was filed by Peter King. Reportedly, he was in a chauffer business and used to drive a limousine. He did all this during his time in United Kingdom before moving to the province of Nova Scotia. Nova Scotia has paid refunds to a number of immigrants who met specific requirements, but Peter King apparently didn’t meet the criteria, largely as his stay in the province was for less than a year.

Allegations In The Suit: The province was accused in the lawsuit for violating its agreement with Peter King by not providing appropriate employers and management posts. It furthermore claimed that Nova Scotia embezzled the funding of trust and violated King's rights given to him by Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which also incorporated for his mobility claims. The law suit states that King is seeking $100,000 along with interest paid in trust and unnamed losses.

What King Paid: Peter King paid a total of $130,500 to get himself to participate into the mentorship program. Out of this $100,000 was held in the trust by Cornwallis Financial Corp. It is a privately owned Halifax firm on behalf of Nova Scotia. That $100,000 of cash was to be compensated to a mentorship program running company that shall after those costs refund a part of it to Peter King as a fraction of what he earns.

King’s Attorney: “He's thrilled,” said, Peter King’s attorney, Ward Branch. He further states that there are about 336 members of the projected class action, a vast majority of them – 231 – shall by paid the full $75,000. If less is paid that would be on account of legal fees that the court agrees. The remaining 105 who were already paid some compensation earlier under the whole scheme would be given a bit less, he added.
