As a content warning, please note that this webpage includes information about gender-based violence and sexual violence. We understand that this can trigger strong reactions and we encourage the community to connect with Carleton University’s  Sexual Assault Support Centre  and/or Health and Counselling Services  for support. Additional community supports can also be found here.

Every year from November 25 to December 10, people all over the world observe the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence. During these 16 days, Carleton University will share a variety of resources, information, stories and videos to help grow awareness about this issue and encourage everyday activism and commitment to ending gender-based violence.

One of the most impactful forms of activism to prevent and end gender-based violence is to believe survivors.



Sorry, there are no upcoming events.

Support for Survivors

Carleton is committed to ongoing learning and growing to deepen our understanding of gender-based violence through an intersectional lens and gaining skills to prevent, intervene and respond appropriately.

The university has support for survivors of sexual violence through Equity and Inclusive Communities (EIC). You can access free and confidential support via web or text message with the new Carleton University Sexual Assault Support Chat Service. For immediate crisis support, you can contact the Ottawa Distress Centre at 613-238-3311 or the Sexual Assault Centre of Ottawa at 613-234-2266.
