Class-action Lawsuit Against Brothers of Charity Approved by Quebec Judge

A class action case has been approved by the Montreal Superior Court against a large international religious organization for alleged sexual assaults that are alleged to have occurred over an 80-year period.

A.B., one of the claimed victims, filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of all individuals who experienced sexual assault by any Brothers of Charity employee or member between January 1940 and the present.

For the past century, the Brothers of Charity have played a significant role in both primary and secondary education in Quebec.

Many schools in the region were founded by the group, notably Collège Saint-Bernard in Drummondville and Mont-Saint-Antoine in Montreal.

More than a dozen claimed victims have already signed up for the class action lawsuit, according to the law firm.
