Scope and content

The Women – Sexual Harassment – Bonnie Robichaud’s Case subseries contains 19 files discussing the sexual harassment lawsuit of Bonnie Robichaud, a cleaner for the Department of National Defense base in North Bay, Ontario, against her supervising foreman and the resulting Supreme Court of Canada landmark decision holding employers responsible for ending sexual harassment in the workplace. Files are arranged chronologically or by type. This subseries contains a variety of document types including correspondence, court documents, newspaper clippings, informational pamphlets, newsletters, press releases, affidavits, memorandum, legislation, and case reports. The specific topics this subseries covers are Bonnie Robichaud’s sexual harassment lawsuit, narratives of the events, tracking of the process of the court case, affidavits from Marguerite Ritchie on workplace sexual harassment submitted for the case, informational booklets written by Bonnie Robichaud about workplace sexual harassment, comparisons of workplace harassment and discrimination laws before and after this case, and case studies of sexual harassment and workplace harassment in Canada. This case was appealed several times, including to the Human Rights Tribunal and the Supreme Court of Canada before resolving in favour of Bonnie Robichaud.
