Filing a complaint


The Capriolo Report was released November 25, 2020. With the support of a Committee, co-chaired by the Honourable Pepita G. Capriolo and Archbishop Christian Lépine, the Archdiocese is now implementing the recommendations contained in the Report. The end result will be an abuse-complaint process that is victim-centred, includes all forms of abuse, and no longer considers the victim’s age at the time of the reported event a criterion for filing a complaint. 

The existence of an Ombudsman, the creation of a five-member lay Advisory Committee, and the conducting of investigations by external experts will ensure that each complaint is treated with due diligence and respect.
