This class action alleges that the Canadian Armed Forces creates and maintains a culture that facilitates and condones sexual assault and sexual harassment of its male members. As a result, there is a very high frequency of sexual assault and harassment against men in the Canadian Armed Forces.
The plaintiff claims on behalf of himself and on behalf of the following class:
All male current and former male members of the Canadian Armed Forces who claim to have experienced sexual assault and sexual harassment in the course of their education, training or service with the Canadian Armed Forces (the “CAF Class Members“).
All other persons who by reason of his or her relationship to a CAF Class Member have standing pursuant to s. 61(1) of the Family Law Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. F.3, or equivalent legislation in other provinces and territories as set out in Schedule “A” (the “Family Law Claimants”).
