Sexual Violence Support and Education at Ontario's Universities

Ontario’s universities are committed to ensuring the safety of all students, faculty and staff and strongly condemn all forms of sexual violence or harassment.

All Ontario universities have developed and continue to regularly review their institutional sexual violence policies and processes to ensure that they maintain a survivor-centric approach.

Additionally, to help ensure students affected by sexual violence get the help they need, universities offer a wide range of awareness, education and prevention initiatives. Many are implementing bystander training for students, faculty and staff, consent training during orientation and a sexual violence prevention and response office, to name only a few.

With a shared goal to protect students and support their success, Ontario’s universities will continue to work alongside government, our partners in the sector and the community to ensure our campuses are safe environments to learn, live and work.
