On March 8, 2016, the government amended the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities Act
and the Private Career Colleges Act, 2005 to require institutions to have sexual violence policies and report to the Minister or the Superintendent on the effectiveness of those policies. To support these changes the ministry developed this survey as one of two reporting mechanisms. The ministry is working on two projects intended to take a survivor-centric approach to data collection: this Student Voices on Sexual Violence survey and a set of Common Institutional Metrics.
The relevant legislation can be found at:
The ministry owns the data and has contracted CCI Research to conduct the survey on their behalf.
