The Manitoba families who filed claims say their loved ones were cared for in three different facilities in the province.

Lawyers working for the families say there are 80 such claims across Canada.

None of the allegations have been tested in court.

A Revera official did not respond to the specific allegations but says company employees provide compassionate, high quality care.

The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority, which provides about $60 million a year to Revera-operated facilities, says is aware of the allegation but is not listed in the lawsuit.

Lawyers representing the families says the lawsuit could take five to seven years. (CTV Winnipeg)
