There are many resources available on campus, in the London community, and online that can share helpful information, provide support, offer help with exploring options, or provide a listening ear. No matter what, there is help available for survivors and supporter/helpers.


Some on-campus resources are identified as confidential, meaning they are licensed medical and/or health professionals who are part of a regulatory body and are bound by confidentiality.

They are not required to report an incident of sexual violence to Brescia or the Police without a survivor’s permission, except in extreme circumstances, such as a health and safety emergency to self or others. In such cases, the privacy of all parties will be regarded with the utmost respect and information will be shared on a need-to-know basis with those who are directly part of providing the necessary support.

Other on-campus support areas are non-confidential resources that can assist a survivor without sharing information that could identify the survivor. However, they must report a minimum amount of information to Brescia in compliance with Ontario’s legislation, Bill 132. In such cases, they will consult with the survivor to ensure no personally identifying details are shared without the survivor’s consent. Because confidentiality can’t be maintained, the privacy of all parties will be regarded with the utmost respect and information will be shared on a need-to-know basis with those who are directly part of providing the necessary support.
