Sienna Senior Living Inc. - Proposed Class Action Discontinued

MARKHAM, Ontario, Nov. 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sienna Senior Living Inc. (“Sienna” or the “Company”) (TSX: SIA) provides an update to the proposed class action that was launched against the Company in May 2018.

On October 25, 2018, the Ontario Superior Court of Justice issued an order discontinuing the proposed class action as a class action. The Company expects that this will be an individual claim and any potential liability pursuant to such claim will be covered by insurance and should therefore not have a material adverse impact on the business.

Sienna has a strong track record of providing quality senior living services and care. Sienna’s Care Communities in Ontario and BC outperform provincial and national averages on the majority of Canadian Institute for Health Information publicly reported quality indicators, have a high resident satisfaction score, and have achieved the highest accreditation standards from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF Canada) and Accreditation Canada.  

“We are pleased with the Court order discontinuing the proposed class action and are proud of the care and services our team members provide to help residents live fully every day,” said Lois Cormack, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sienna.
