This lawsuit cites 245 cases of sexual misconduct in Cadets Canada between 2006 and 2015, some involving adult instructors or reserve officers. Dozens of potential class members have come forward with additional allegations of a toxic culture of misconduct.
Cadets Canada is sponsored by the Canadian Armed Forces and funded by the Department of National Defense. There are approximately 55,000 young people involved in the Cadets Canada organization.
The lawsuit purports that the discriminatory and sexualized culture in Cadets Canada is caused by the leadership’s failure to implement appropriate policies to properly train its members and to identify, report, investigate and properly resolve incidents of sexual assault and sexual harassment.

A class action is a lawsuit which provides a method for a large group of people with common claims to come together to advance one claim on behalf of the group. Class actions are more efficient and cost-effective and allow for groups of people with common claims to gain access to the legal system and seek justice on their behalf.
A certification motion is where the court determines whether an action can be pursued as a class action. The court considers factors such as whether the claims of the class members raise common legal and/or factual issues and whether a class action is the preferable method of pursuing the claims (as opposed to individual actions).
