QC announces $54M investment in fight against sexual violence on postsecondary campuses


The Government of Quebec has announced a $54M investment into fighting sexual violence on postsecondary campuses. Institutions will use the funds to hire specialists and implement “one-stop shops” on campuses to support victims, conduct research on sexual violence in institutions, and engage with partners who can support safe development for high-risk areas within institutions. This investment marks a $25M increase from the last budget, and this increase was reportedly spurred by recent reports of high rates of sexual violence experienced by QC cégep, college, and university students.
