It would not be constructive dismissal. Constructive dismissal is when the employee is driven to resign.

That letter is a dismissal letter and so it may be wrongful dismissal but not constructive dismissal.

You can contact the BC Branch of the Canadian Bar Association and use their Lawyer Referral Service. You will be given the name of a lawyer and can consult with the lawyer and the first half hour will be $25.

The number is:
