You may be entitled to compensation

in the Microsoft legal settlement.

Did you buy PC Versions of Microsoft MS-DOS, Windows, Office Word, Works, and/or Excel from Microsoft through a volume license program (such as the Open, Select, and Enterprise Agreement programs) between 1998 and 2010 for use in Canada? If so, you have until October 23, 2021 to submit a claim.

The claims process is simple, but it does involve several steps. Remember, your information is automatically saved so you can always pause and come back to it later.
Step 1:
Check if you’re eligible.

Answer a few simple questions to see if you're eligible for compensation.

Step 2:
Tell us what software you bought.

Choose to rely upon Microsoft’s volume license sales data to identify your eligible purchases OR detail the specific Microsoft PC software you purchased between 1998 and 2010. Include the purchase of any computer pre-loaded with Microsoft PC software.

Step 3:
Upload your documentation.

If you’re claiming more than $650 for volume licenses and you do not choose to rely upon Microsoft’s volume license sales data you will be asked for some documentation as proof of purchase.

Step 4:
Certify your information.

Reread your claims information and certify that it is complete and true.

Volume Licensee Purchasers (purchases made through the Open, Select and Enterprise Agreement programs) have until October 23, 2021 to submit a claim.
The claims deadline for consumer (individual purchasers) closed on September 23, 2021, and the Claims Administrator has begun processing these claims.
Please be patient: the claims process will not be complete until early 2022.
