“Policy on Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment”

If you or someone you know has experienced sexual violence and requires assistance, please access the safety programs and resources available to students, staff, and faculty both on- and off-campus.


The draft Policy on Sexual Violence draws on the recommendations of the Expert Panel on Sexual Violence Policies and the requirements of Bill 132. The draft Policy also builds on the work of the Presidential and Provostial Committee on Preventing and Responding to Sexual Violence, which began in November 2014.

The legislation requires that a policy come into force by January 1, 2017 that outlines how universities will respond to and address incidents and complaints of sexual violence involving students enrolled at the University.

For further information, please see the University’s work on Preventing and Responding to Sexual Violence on the Provost’s Office website. Questions can be directed to
