Reporting an incident
It is often difficult to disclose and report incidents of sexual violence. It is your choice whether or not to report the incident; however, we strongly encourage you to do so. A number of other resources, on and off campus are available to you, including:
- Counselling Services
- Human Resources
- Any Staff or Faculty member
- Security Services
- Waterloo Region Police Service
Filing a formal complaint
Conestoga’s Safety and Security Services and Counselling Services can assist you with filing a formal complaint. If the alleged perpetrator is another member of the college community, you may file a complaint under this policy with Human Resources.
Individuals who have experienced sexual violence may also wish to press charges under the Criminal Code. Security Services and Counselling Services can also assist you with contacting local police should you prefer not contacting the police directly.
More information on filing a complaint can be found at: Security Services ext. 5555
