Some 80,000 students who turned to the Quebec government's Régime de prêts et bourses between 1997 and 1998 might find a check in the mail. A collective refund has been initiated to reimburse interest fees that were illegally paid to the régime. It has taken 10 years and a wave at the Supreme court for the Sternthal Katznelson Montigny law firm to win the battle against Quebec. While the average refund amount is of $375, students who did use the service have to file a claim on the Education ministry's website.

According to Alan Edmunds, an educational psychology professor at the University of Western Ontario, this would be because Quebec has standardized guidelines for ADHD diagnoses, which would ensure that children receive the same assessment no matter which doctor they pay a visit to.
