Educate the parents as well

Another thing the current policy is missing is maybe to educate the parents as well. When, like, someone has an impact of this sexual assault, [...] they will speak with their parents, so parents should also be educated enough so that they can know what to do during this crisis.


  • Develop a one-page document for parents/guardians of students that highlights key policy points and links to sexual assault resources and supports available in Canada.
