Canadore hires third party to investigate discrimination, harassment  allegations

March 1, 2019

Canadore College has hired an outside investigator to look into allegations of discrimination and harassment on campus, reports CBC. While a specific claimant has started an Ontario Human Rights file against an individual at Canadore, that claimant’s lawyer, Gillian Hnatiw, suggested in a written statement that other former Canadore employees had made anonymous complaints as well. Hnatiw added that all of the claims include allegations of sexual misconduct, bullying, and psychological harassment. Canadore President George Burton said the college “has repeatedly asked the lawyer for the complainant to provide us details that will help us determine any further action, but as of yet details have not been provided.” CBC | Sudbury Star North Bay Nugget (ON)
