Sexual Assault

It’s Important… Let’s talk about it
If you have been sexually assaulted you do not need to be alone. Many people have experienced sexual assault.
IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT. There are people who can help.

YOUR FIRST STEP IS TO TELL SOMEONE AND ASK FOR HELP!

Special thanks to Western University, CALACS and The SexEd Group from Champlain Regional College, for sharing the following resources and information.

Sexual Assault is any form of sexual activity with another person without his / her consent. It includes touching, grabbing, kissing, and / or attempted or completed oral, anal, and / or vaginal intercourse.

Don’t assume consent. Anything other than a freely stated YES is a NO.

Sexual assault can happen to anyone at any time. Females and males are sexually assaulted by people of the same or opposite gender. Women are 11 times more likely than men to be a victim of sexual offences, and 3 times more likely to be the victim of criminal harassment (Stats Canada 2011).

If you have experienced a sexual assault, please know you are not to blame. BISHOP’S has resources and people that can help you get the support you need.

If you’ve been sexually assaulted, go to our Get Help & Emergency Resources page
