The Royal Canadian Legion v. AvivaPosted June 23, 2020
Lerners LLP launches another proposed class action against Aviva Insurance
We have filed a proposed class action against Aviva Insurance Company of Canada on behalf of Branches of The Royal Canadian Legion across Canada (except in the province of British Columbia) whose insurance coverage for loss of business income relating to COVID-19 has been denied by Aviva.
This action applies to all Legions who were insured under the commercial insurance policy issued by Aviva on behalf of The Royal Canadian Legions, pursuant to the PIB Provincial Command Insurance Program. The action alleges that Aviva is in breach of contract when it denied the Legions’ loss of business income coverage after they were ordered by provincial and territorial governments to close their non-essential businesses due to the outbreak of COVID-19. The proposed action claims for payment of loss of business income damages to those Legions with the Aviva policy.
