Pharmacy Records Breach of Professional Secrecy Class Action


CONSUMER LAW GROUP has launched a class action lawsuit against Angita Pharma Inc. and The Jean Coutu Group (PJC) Inc. on behalf of all persons who have a pharmacy record that was accessed by Angita Pharma.

It is alleged that Angita Pharma was given access to customers’ confidential pharmacy records for profit. It is alleged that Jean Coutu was reckless or grossly negligent for failing to put in place safeguards that would prevent this type of conduct from being able to take place.

Over 200 pharmacists (73 of which are affiliated with Jean Coutu) have been accused by their professional order, the Ordre des pharmaciens du Québec, of allowing Respondent Angita Pharma access to their clients’ confidential files.

The names of the other pharmacies have not yet been revealed at this time.

The pharmacists that have been named in the disciplinary complaint work in Montreal, Quebec City, Sherbrooke, Terrebonne, Drummondville, Thetford Mines, Brossard, and elsewhere in Quebec.

Class Members entrusted their most sensitive medical data to their pharmacy based on their reasonable belief that it would be kept confidential, safe, and secure. Instead, the Respondents either breached professional secrecy or allowed professional secrecy to be breached, monetized Class Members’ pharmacy files and allowed them to be mined for insight about their medical conditions and medications.

The claim is that Class Members’ personal and private information have been compromised, entitling them to claim damages for: (a) trouble and inconvenience, (b) stress and anxiety, and (c) punitive damages.
