On March 2, 2011, the Minister Responsible for Women’s Issues, Laurel Broten, announced Ontario’s Sexual Violence Action Plan as a “commitment to protect women from all forms of sexual violence”.
The plan focuses on three areas:
- Raising public awareness to prevent sexual violence
- Expanding and improving services for victims of sexual violence
- Strengthening the criminal justice response toward sexual violence
You can read more details about the plan on the Ontario Women’s Directorate website:
