To report sexual assault or violence:

What happens after I report a sexual assault?

If you report to the Police:

In most cases, a police officer will take brief details about the sexual assault. The officer may ask you to go to the hospital to treat any injuries and to have a Sexual Evidence Kit take samples.

If you report to a College official:

We will believe you, ensure you are safe and discuss options on how you wish to proceed.

Reporting emergencies

  • Police, Ambulance, Fire 911
    • When calling 911 at the College, it is essential that Campus Security be notified so we can respond and direct emergency vehicles and personnel where needed.
  • Campus Security
    • Use a Yellow Emergency Phone
    • Emergency, 416-289-5000, ext. 2020
    • Emergency Helpline 416-439-4357 (HELP), free call from any College payphone or mobile phone

Reporting sexual assault or violence to the College

It is often difficult to disclose and report incidents of sexual assault or violence. It is entirely up to you if you choose to report the incident. However, we strongly encourage you to do so.
