Toyota Access Program Class Action

Background to Settlement


A class action lawsuit was initiated in British Columbia alleging that Toyota Canada, Inc. engaged in anticompetitive conduct through implementation of the “Access Program”. The lawsuit was certified as a class action.


Toyota denies that it has violated any law, denies that it engaged in any and all wrongdoing, and denies that the Access Program was anticompetitive. The Court has not made any finding as to the truth or merits of the claims or defences asserted by either side.  The allegations made by the plaintiffs have not been proven in court.


Without any admission of liability or wrongdoing, a Settlement Agreement has been reached. If you would like to download or view a copy of the Settlement Agreement click here.


Who is a class member?


All Canadian residents who purchased or leased a Toyota vehicle from an Authorized Toyota Dealership in British Columbia between June 12, 2002 and June 30, 2004 are class members.
