Workplace Sexual Harassment Project

CLEA has set up a Workplace Sexual Harassment Hotline for Manitoba. The Hotline is staffed by a staff lawyer who can provide legal information and advice, make appropriate referrals to agencies, print and other resources. In appropriate circumstances, the staff lawyer can refer the client to a lawyer on CLEA’s lawyer referral panel for representation. This project is funded by Justice Canada.

The toll-free number for the Hotline is 1-877-226-4366
