Canada’s defence minister will join the country’s top soldier in delivering a formal apology to survivors of sexual misconduct in the armed forces on December 13.
“All Defence Team members should be treated fairly in a workplace that is safe and free of any kind of harassment and discrimination,” says a joint statement from the federal government.
“We know there is much more work to do to create lasting and positive culture change, and we will continue to listen to and learn from those affected to ensure we are taking the necessary action to make that change.”
Defence Minister Anita Anand
