About This Guide

The guide was developed to empower students, faculty and staff at Mohawk College with increased understanding and skills to recognize and prevent sexual and gender-based violence, including sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic/dating violence, stalking and revenge porn. Also, the guide includes the College’s policy on sexual assault and sexualized violence to help you understand how the college views and addresses sexualized violence and support people who have been affected by sexualized violence, either directly or as a witness

Proceed with care as learning about consent and sexual violence, while important, can also be difficult. We know that one in three Canadian women, and one in eight Canadian men, will experience sexual violence in their lifetime. Many of us have probably experienced or know someone who has been affected by sexual violence, which might make this content hard to consume.


Support Services Contacts: If you need to talk to someone, reach a counsellor by emailing Mohawk College at, or the Student Rights and Responsibilities Office at during business hours; or calling SACHA 24/7 at (905) 525-4162

Below is a list of organizations operating in and around Hamilton that are providing supports to the community and actively working to end gender-based violence:
