Sexual Assault Centre Contribution Program
The Sexual Assault Centre Contribution Program funds projects from civilian sexual assault centres located near 9 of the largest Canadian Forces bases.
This Program was announced in 2018 as part of It’s Time: Canada’s Strategy to Prevent and Address Gender-based Violence. This Strategy is part of the Government of Canada’s response to gender-based violence.
The Program seeks to address gaps in support for the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) community by enhancing access to survivor support services.
The “CAF community” refers to anyone associated with the CAF, including:
- family members
- civilian employees
- other persons impacted by the CAF presence in their community
The Program also provides opportunities for increased collaboration between community-based civilian service providers and CAF service providers.
By facilitating access to critical support services, the expected outcome of this Program is that survivors in the CAF community are better able to cope with the effects of sexual assault.
