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 do. A number of other resources, on and off campus are available to you, including:

Filing a formal complaint

Conestoga’s Safety and Security Services and Counselling Services can help you file 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 help you contact local police, should you prefer not contacting the police directly.

More information on filing a complaint can be found at: Security Services ext. 5555.
