Gregory Burke, the outgoing CEO and executive director of Saskatoon’s Remai Modern Art Museum, is under investigation by the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission for alleged workplace harassment dating back to his time at the Mendel Art Gallery.

According to a document obtained by CBC News, the complaint was filed with the commission by a woman who worked with Burke at the Mendel, now known as Remai Modern.

CBC News is not identifying the woman, whose allegation has not been proven in court. Her lawyer also confirmed the complaint.

Burke did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

The commission document obtained by CBC News does not detail the specifics of the allegation. The corporate entities for both Mendel Art Gallery and Remai Modern are named alongside Burke as respondents.

“My aim investigating this complaint is to determine the facts and gather relevant perspectives on the situation,” wrote commission investigator Lewanna Dubray in the document.

Dubray said she is seeking information from the complainant, Burke and “all potential witnesses.”

The commission would neither confirm nor deny the complaint or investigation.

“The commission is an unbiased organization,” the commission said in a statement to CBC News. “As a matter of general principle, and because of privacy concerns, the commission does not discuss or disclose the particulars of ongoing complaints.” MORE
