What kind of support can you expect?

At Humber College and the University of Guelph-Humber, we approach all instances of sexual assault and violence through a survivor-centric lens. In doing so, we offer comprehensive support to ensure survivors feel supported throughout the entire process, so that they can focus on their wellness and recovery while remaining successful in their academic pursuits. These are some of the many supports that we can offer:

  • Referrals to legal and health support/advocacy, both on and off campus
  • Referrals to Counselling Services, Health Services and Accessible Learning Services
  • Housing and financial resources and options
  • Full support navigating the Student Code of Conduct process through the Office of Student Conduct
  • Support with accessing temporary academic or internship/workplace considerations, if required
  • Safety planning
  • Providing self-care resources
  • Explaining options and next steps

Why get support?

If you have experienced sexual assault and/or violence, getting help can be positive. There are several reasons why getting support can be beneficial:

  • Access to free and confidential counselling services, to help navigate through the emotional experiences you may be having
  • An explanation of your options for reporting (formally and informally) and referrals, so you are better informed to make the best decision for yourself
  • Access to medical care – even if you do not have any physical injuries, you may want to consider getting tested for STIs and pregnancy
  • Support navigating academic considerations (such as changes in test time/location, extensions for assignment deadlines, etc.) with your academic school

Consider Reporting Options

For students:

What if you choose to report?

If you are the survivor of sexual assault and/or violence, you will be connected with one of Humber College’s Student Support and Intervention Coordinators (SSICs).

The SSICs support survivors through a case-management model, triaging to appropriate resources and referrals and providing general support and advocacy.

If you choose to report an instance of sexual assault and/or violence at the college level, it will go through the Code of Student Conduct process via the Office of Student Conduct. The SSIC can support you with meeting with the Office of Student Conduct staff to provide your formal statement and attend any follow-up meetings, if and as required. In the meantime, if you require support with accessing academic considerations or other supports, the SSIC will help coordinate that for you.

For employees:

If you would like to make a formal report of having experienced sexual assault and/or violence, you can call:

Department of Public Safety (Security): 416-675-6622, ext. 4000, 24/7

You may wish to bring a supportive person with you, this may be a friend, family member or colleague.

Filing Formal Police Report:

Employees who have experienced sexual assault and/or violence may also wish to pursue charges under the Criminal Code of Canada. If you wish to pursue charges, the Department of Public Safety can assist you with contacting the local police line. You may make both a formal college report as well as a formal police report.
