Sexual Assault Response Program
What is Sexual Assault
Sexual assault is any sexual contact that you did not agree to. Sexual assault can include any form of sexual contact (unwanted touching, forced kissing, forced sex). It may have happened to you in the past, or it may have happened recently. In Canada, sexual assault is a crime.
Sexual assault can happen to anyone, of any background, at any age. What happened to you was not your fault. Sexual assault is a traumatic experience. You may be in a state of shock, you may feel guilty, anxious, numb, angry, embarrassed or ashamed. All of your reactions and feelings are normal. You are not alone. Help is available.
How We Can Help
Our support workers and counsellors are available for you to talk about what has happened. We respect your privacy and autonomy to decide how we can best support you.
