Gov. Gen. Julie Payette has resigned from her post following reports of a “damaging” workplace harassment investigation.

“Everyone has a right to a healthy and safe work environment, at all times and under all circumstances. It appears this was not always the case at the Office of the Secretary to the Governor General,” Payette said in a statement Thursday.

“Tensions have arisen at Rideau Hall over the past few months and for that, I am sorry.”

Payette’s resignation come hours after sources told CTV News that an independent review into workplace harassment allegations against her was completed and that the details of the report were “damaging.”

“While no formal complaints or official grievances were made during my tenure, which would have immediately triggered a detailed investigation as prescribed by law and the collective agreements in place, I still take these allegations very seriously,” Payette said in her statement.

“Not only did I welcome a review of the work climate at the OSGG, but I have repeatedly encouraged employees to participate in the review in large numbers. We all experience things differently, but we should always strive to do better, and be attentive to one another’s perceptions.”
