Sexual violence: Assault, Abuse and Harassment

There are many services and resources on campus and in the community to support survivors of sexual assault, those involved in abusive relationships and those who may be experiencing sexual harassment.

We can help you identify and cope with these issues, regardless of your race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed, sex, gender identification, sexual orientation, age, marital status, family status and disability. 

How to help

You can take action to help prevent sexual violence. Check out our ;bystander intervention poster for what to do and say if you see a disturbing situation.
