Sexual Violence Policy

Canadian All Care College Sexual Violence Policy

CACC is committed to providing its students with an educational environment free from sexual violence and treating its students who report incidents of sexual violence with dignity and respect.

CACC has adopted this Sexual Violence Policy, which defines sexual violence and outlines its training, reporting, investigative and disciplinary responses to complaints of sexual violence made by its students on its campus or at one of its events and involves CACC students.

The person accused of engaging in sexual violence will be referred to as the “Respondent and the person making the allegation as the “Complainant.

Sexual violence is any sexual act targeting a person’s sexuality, gender identity, or gender expression. Whether the act is physical or psychological, is committed, threatened, or attempted against a person without the person’s consent, and includes sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking, indecent exposure, voyeurism, and sexual exploitation.

  1. If students, in good faith, report an incident of or make a complaint about, sexual violence, they will not be subject to discipline or sanctions for violations of the private career college’s policies relating to drug or alcohol use at the time the alleged sexual violence occurred.
  2. For students who disclose their experience of sexual violence by reporting/complaining about an incident or accessing support and services related to sexual violence. The private career college’s staff or investigators will not be asked irrelevant questions during the investigation, including irrelevant questions relating to the student’s sexual expression or past sexual history.

Career college management, instructors, staff, other employees, and contractors of CACC will report incidents of or complaints of sexual violence to CACC’s Joint Health and Safety Committee appointed by President Miajan Aryan and Vice-President Yan Xia upon becoming aware of them.

CACC shall include an excerpt of the Sexual Violence Policy in every enrollment contract. In addition, provide a copy of the Sexual Violence Policy to CACC management, instructors, staff, other employees, and contractors and train them about the policy; its processes of reporting, investigating, and responding to complaints of sexual violence involving its students.

Any organization participating in providing students opportunities to complete the placement component on their premises is obligated to provide a statement in writing that it complies with all applicable legislation. Including the Ontario Human Rights Code and the Occupational Health and Safety Act will provide students access to those policies should they encounter issues relating to sexual violence in the workplace.

When a new class starts, the office staff and the primary instructor will spend some time explaining to the class about the college policy, especially the sexual Violence policy, to ensure the students understand how to protect themselves. CACC will give each student a brochure about the sexual violence policy, and the instructor will use the PPT and video to give the students a better understanding of the sexual violence policy.

Subject to Section 4, CACC will attempt to keep all personal information of persons involved in the investigation confidential. Except in those circumstances where it believes an individual is at imminent risk of self-harm or harming another, or there are reasonable grounds to believe that others on its campus or the broader community are at risk.

  • Ensuring that all complaints/reports and information gathered because of the complaint reports will be only available to those who need to know for purposes of investigation, implementing safety measures and other circumstances that arise from any given case.
  • Ensuring that the documentation is kept in a separate file from that of the Complainant student or the Respondent.

CACC recognizes the right of the Complainant not to report an incident of or make a complaint about sexual violence or not request an investigation and not participate in any investigation that may occur.

The student is not required to report an incident of, or make a complaint about, Sexual violence to obtain support, services, or accommodation.
