Recognizing and Responding to Sexual Violence in Canada 


Facilitated by Zak Dattadeen and Saba Kidane, Sexual Assault Centre

At some point in their lives 1 in 3 Canadian women and 1 in 6 Canadianmen will experience sexual assault. Despite the prevalence of sexual violence in our country, manyCanadian are not provided with comprehensive information of the subject. In this workshop the SexualAssault Centre of Edmonton presents accurate, research-based, non-victim-blaming information onsexual violence and prevalent attitudes and beliefs that create conditions where sexual violence isallowed to happen. Participants will gain a thorough understanding of Canada’s consent laws, how torespond to disclosures of sexual assault, and effective community responses to sexual violence.
