Public servants have a right to work in an environment free of discrimination and harassment. The definitions of each can be found in the Treasury Board Policy on the Prevention and Resolution of Harassment in the Workplace and the Canadian Human Rights Act .
For Financial Officers at NAV CANADA, the Collective Agreement lays out the process for filing such a complaint.
Do you believe you have been a victim of harassment or discrimination?
- Contact a Labour Relations Advisor. Our Advisors can help you determine if your complaint falls within the definitions mentioned above. Importantly, we can also help you explore other options if it doesn’t. Not sure what the process of contacting labour relations is like and are hesitating to reach out?

- Keep track of the details. When filing a formal complaint, it is very important to document the events. Copy relevant emails, take notes of relevant phone calls and voice mails and establish a timeline of events. We can help you with this but the more you collect up front, the more quickly we can move forward.
- Don’t wait. There are strict deadlines for filing these complaints. The amount of work that needs to be done before filing varies so it is very important to contact us as soon as you believe you have been harassed or discriminated against.
