We are aware that seeing or hearing the name of an abuser can be challenging, not just for survivors but also for family members, for friends of the Society of Jesus, or even for members of the general public. Trained third-party counselors are available to listen to you and support you. This service is free of charge and completely confidential. Please note that the service is for immediate emotional support rather than long-term counselling.

These resources are not the means to make a formal complaint. As always, the Jesuits of Canada encourage any person who has suffered abuse by a Jesuit to notify the appropriate law enforcement or child-protection agency in the location in which the incident took place. They are further encouraged to contact Mr. William Blakeney, the Jesuits Province’s delegate for allegations of misconduct. He can be reached confidentially via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or in writing to the Jesuits of Canada, 25 Jarry St W, Montreal, QC H2P 1S6.
