Policy for Harassment in the ChurchThe policy of The Presbyterian Church in Canada is that harassment of any kind shall not be tolerated and will be addressed. The updated Policy and Procedures for Addressing Harassment in the Church focuses on the church’s life: on the people who lead and serve, both paid and volunteer; on the people who are served by the church; and on the church’s activities and ministries.

The harassment policy applies to everyone who participates in the worship life and activities of The Presbyterian Church in Canada. Every person has the right to expect to be treated with respect and to be safe in a harassment-free environment. Every person is expected to behave in ways that offer the same respect and safety to others. The document is available for download from our Safety Policies page, along with a video presentation summarizing the document and a learning tool to review your knowledge.
