Join the New RCMP Class Action Settlement
New RCMP Class Action Settlement
A Federal Court class action lawsuit has been certified to settle allegations of gender and sexual orientation-based harassment and discrimination within the RCMP by non- policing female employees, consultants, and volunteers. The RCMP has agreed to a settlement of this lawsuit. Compensation ranges from $10,000 to $220,000 for approved claims.
We invite women who might qualify for compensation to register for the class. Our compassionate all-female team (which includes counsellors, social workers and nurses) will support and protect you through this confidential process. The settlement prevents retaliation.

How To Claim for the RCMP Class Action Settlement
Claimants are entitled to make claims without a lawyer, but this can be risky, complicated and time consuming without the support of a qualified team to properly manage the process.
The Claims application form is complex and extensive and requires many lengthy narrative answers. The existence or absence of any one factor at any of the six levels of compensation does not dictate the level at which a claim will be decided. This means a careful approach to the answers given is vitally important.
Claimants who qualify above level 2 compensation will undergo an interview with the Court-appointed Assessor without a lawyer present. Proper preparation for this interview will reduce the risk of disqualification and maximize optimum compensation.
If you or someone you know qualifies, you (or she) may be eligible for substantial compensation. Register now to find out if you qualify.
