The Application

The Application for certification of a class action on behalf of all members of the RCMP (past and present) arose from the many members coming forward with their long-standing stories of harassment, abuse and discrimination experienced while working in the RCMP. These are stories that span many decades and point to a culture of bullying, harassment and discrimination in the RCMP.

The Process

The proceedings are at the Certification stage. This means Class Action proceedings have been commenced by the filing of an Application for the certification of a Class Action. This was done in Quebec Superior Court on November 2nd, 2016. If the Application is successful before the Court, the Class will be certified and the proceedings will move on the next stage.

The Application was filed on behalf of a Class composed of: All Members of the RCMP (past and present) who are, or have been, the victims of harassment, discrimination, and abuses of power by management/superiors, and who are excluded from the Merlo Davidson Class Action settlement
