Sexual Violence Support and Education

If you or someone you know has experienced sexual violence, help is available. These resources can provide support and information about your medical, counselling and reporting options. Sexual violence is never the survivor’s fault. 

It is not necessary to make a formal complaint of sexual violence in order to access support, services, or accommodations. To confidentially review your options, please contact the Sexual Violence Prevention Advisor. Information is listed below.

What is sexual violence?

Sexual violence is a sexual act of aggression against another person. At the core of all sexual violence is that the targeted person does not consent. To learn more about sexual violence, please watch this short video.


Confidentiality is essential in making you feel safe to disclose sexual violence, and seek support and accommodation. Before you disclose information, you have the right to ask the person about the level of confidentiality you can expect from them.
