Canada, BC fund specialized training resources, systemic change to addressing sexualized violence

The Government of Canada and Government of British Columbia have each provided $500K to address sexualized violence at postsecondary institutions in the province. The federal funds will be used to develop specialized training resources – to be made available by Summer 2024 – that support systemic change and enable staff, faculty, and students to prevent, respond to, and report sexualized violence. “We know that rates of sexualized violence are most prominent among post-secondary-aged students,” said Grace Lore, Parliamentary Secretary for Gender Equity. “We all have a responsibility to prevent sexualized violence and we are continuing to work with post-secondary institutions, students and communities to create awareness and to foster a culture of safety for everyone.” BC Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
