The work we do is led by the collaborative efforts of our members, stakeholders, and community partnerships to address the issue of sexual violence in Saskatchewan. Together, we are committed to creating change from the front-lines to the legislative.
Below are the initiatives we are currently working on:
Saskatchewan Sexual Violence Action Plan
The Saskatchewan Sexual Violence Action Plan titled, Working Together: Your Voice, Your Story, Your Action is a document that outlines 22 actions focusing on prevention and education, support and intervention, responsive legal and justice systems, and collaborative leadership and accountability.
First Responder to Sexual Assault and Abuse Training (FRT)
First Responder to Sexual Assault and Abuse Training™ (FRT) is a comprehensive two-day training designed to aid those who work with individuals who have, or are at risk of, experiencing sexual violence.
The purpose of the training is educate individuals about the social, cultural and legal aspects of sexual assault and abuse, which will enable them to recognize, define and respond appropriately to the continuum of behaviours that constitute sexual assault and abuse.
Sexual Violence in Saskatchewan: Voices, Stories, Insights and Actions from The Front Lines Research Report
Sexual Violence in Saskatchewan: Voices, Stories, Insights, and Actions from the Front Lines is a research report that captures a comprehensive understanding of sexual violence in Saskatchewan through an examination of sexual violence experiences and the existing strengths and gaps in service provision.
The findings of this report informed the development of Working Together, Saskatchewan’s first five-year Sexual Violence Action Plan. The Action Plan is a guide to help us move forward towards ending sexual violence in Saskatchewan.
Violence Against Women Advocate Case Review (VACR)
VACR is a project that connects sexual assault advocates and experts with local police stations to review all sexual assault files “cleared”, or closed without charges on a quarterly basis. This project is currently being conducted in collaboration with Sunny Marriner, Regina Sexual Assault Centre, and Regina Police Service.
Saskatchewan Sexual Violence Education Initiative
This initiative is designed to prevent and address sexual violence and the gendered-impacts of COVID-19 in Saskatchewan through an evidence-based, trauma-informed, and intersectional sexual violence education program(s) supported by a provincial framework for sustainability including diverse platforms for information dissemination, resource sharing and skill-building.
