Press Conference with Deputy Premier Deb Matthews

We were pleased to host Deputy Premier Deb Matthews on January 18, 2016 for a press conference regarding proposed legislation changes to build on commitments made in the Sexual Violence and Harassment Action Plan to amend the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities Act and Private Career Colleges Act to:

  • Make campuses safer by requiring every publicly assisted college, university and private career college to have a stand-alone sexual violence policy, and to review their policy at least once every three years. Institutions would be required to seek student input in the policy development and review processes.
  • Require colleges, universities and private career colleges to report on the incidence of sexual violence to the Minister/Superintendent, as well as on initiatives to address sexual violence and their effectiveness, as requested by the Minister or Superintendent.
