Connect to Services

You don't have to do this alone. 

There are many services, on and off campus, intended to support survivors of sexual assault, be it physically, medically, emotionally, academically, or legally. It is up to the survivor to decide what kinds of services might help and to choose to access those services. Many people find counselling and other services helpful, both in the short and long term.

If you are having symptoms that interfere with your daily activities, don’t wait: talk to a health care provider or counsellor today. Sometimes people decide not to talk to anyone right away; the right time to talk to someone is whenever you are ready to do so -- and want to do so -- even if the event happened some time ago.

If this is an emergency, call 911.

You can reach Campus Police in an emergency by dialing 4444 or 911 on any campus phone.

If you need support right now, you can reach the Sexual Assault Crisis Centre's 24-hour call line at: (519) 253-9667
