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 between 1998 and 2010 for use in Canada?  If so, you might be eligible for compensation.

Make a claim to get up to $250 cash for individual licenses or get up to $650 in vouchers for Volume Licenses without proof of purchase.

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.

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 $250 for individual software licenses or more than $650 for volume licenses, 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.

Consumers (individual purchasers) have until September 23, 2021 to submit a claim.
Volume Licensee Purchasers (purchases made through the Open, Select and Enterprise Agreement programs) have until October 23, 2021 to submit a claim.
Please be patient: the claims process will not be complete until early 2022.
