UQO professor suspended, fined for inappropriate behaviour

A professor at the Université du Québec en Outaouais has been suspended and fined for engaging in sexually inappropriate behaviour with research centre members and a doctoral student. CBC reports that the Order of Psychologists of Quebec’s disciplinary council found that, between 2011 and 2016, psychology professor Stéphane Bouchard maintained an environment conducive to comments of a sexual nature in his research centre. Bouchard has also been found guilty of inappropriate behaviour, including “crude language or language with a sexual content and behaviours of the same nature” with a doctoral student. Bouchard has been suspended for 10 months and has been fined $5.5K. CBC| Radio-Canada Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
