Consent Workshops

Our consent workshops run at least once a month from September to April. The workshop is two hours long and will be held at the University of Victoria. They are free of charge, open to students and community members, and have a no late-comer policy.

Consent Workshops 

Find Support

Asking for help is one of the hardest things to do. When you are asking for help about an issue that might feel really private, confusing and/or embarrassing, it is important to get support that is judgemental, without pressure, and informed.

Supporting a Survivor Workshops

This workshop provides some foundations for supporting survivors of sexualized violence. Throughout the workshop we will discuss different approaches and tools that can be used when supporting someone. Workshops are offered several times throughout the fall and winter semesters, are open to everyone, and are free of charge.

From the Martlet Archives: A 1998 news story detailing the first paid coordinator for the AVP (what was once known as the Open UVic Resource Sexual Assault Centre). Recently students voted on increasing the AVP's fee levy for the first time since 1998.

3955 students voted in the referendum (~21%). 74% of those who voted voted “yes” to the few increase.

The results are in: the @AVP_UVic referendum has passed. 21 per cent of eligible students voted, 74 per cent of whom voted in favour.
