The Student Voices on Sexual Violence Survey is now closed. We would like to thank the more than 160,000 students from Universities, Colleges, and Private Career Colleges across Ontario for their participation in this important initiative. Over the coming months, the data collected will be analyzed and reports will be provided to the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development as well as each institution. Check back here in the Fall to view some provincial and sector level survey results.
On March 8, 2016, the government amended the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities Act and the Private Career Colleges Act to require institutions to have sexual violence policies and report to the Minister or the Superintendent on the effectiveness of those policies. The relevant legislation can be found at:
