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

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.
