Angela was lead counsel on a class action brought against the RCMP on behalf of female workers who had been subjected to sexual harassment, discrimination, and assault in the RCMP workplace. Despite the legal and logistical challenges associated with this complex action, Angela successfully negotiated a settlement with an estimated value of $100 million, which was approved by the Federal Court. The action was innovative and paved the way for class proceedings to be used as vehicles for addressing systemic sexual misconduct.
Angela was also class counsel in several class actions centred on Indigenous rights, including the Sixties Scoop class action, the Indigenous Boarding Homes class action and the Indigenous Hospitals class action. And she was counsel on motion for Gowling WLG at their fee approval hearing in the Indigenous Day Schools litigation, where they were awarded a $55M fee.
Angela is currently class counsel on numerous class actions that seek to push the boundaries of the law, including actions focused on commercial wrongs, pension calculation errors, privacy breaches, veterans’ rights, sexual misconduct, and Indigenous rights.
Angela Bespflug is an author on the subject of class actions and a regular presenter at conferences on class actions and emerging areas of the law.
