Involvement Restriction Policy

What is the IRP?

The IRP (Involvement Restriction Policy) is a contract and policy that processes, investigates, and acts on complaints of any inappropriate conduct, such as discrimination, harassment, or sexual violence. This policy is uniform across faculties to efficiently apply a ban across all events.

Who can use the IRP?

Any McGill undergraduate student may report a complaint under the IRP. The IRP applies to all members of SSMU including students, SSMU volunteers, and staff, or those impacted by these individual’s actions.

How do I file a complaint?

Reports may be made to SSMU or to your faculty association. To report an incident to the AUS, you can email or fill out the complaint form below.

What should I include in my complaint?

The complaint should be as detailed as possible including the dates, times, a description of the incident, the identity of the respondent and their relationship to SSMU and/or AUS, the names of witnesses, etc.

How long will the process take?

After a complaint is filed, the IRP committee will take one week to determine if the complaint falls under the IRP. After ratification, the investigation process will last no longer than four weeks.
