Protocol and Procedures for Cases of Alleged Abuse and Misconduct by Clergy
The Archbishop’s office is directly responsible for the implementation of these guidelines. The Archbishop will ensure that these guidelines are well-known throughout the diocese and are continually kept in mind by the parishes, movements and individuals that make up the diocese. Each year, he will gather his staff to develop a plan for the pastoral year to ensure the continued formation necessary in this regard.
Canadian Reporting System
Sexual abuse or other sexual misconduct by a Bishop, or whose actions or omissions intended to interfere with or avoid civil investigations or canonical investigations regarding sexual abuse, can be reported to Church authorities using the Canadian Reporting System for Sexual Abuse or Cover-up by a Catholic Bishop. This reporting system uses a confidential and secure platform designed by ClearView, an independent professional ethics firm based in Canada, to transmit your report to the proper Church authorities, who in turn will act as required by church and civil law.
