Over half of QC's universities and CEGEPs miss sexual violence policy deadline

January 15, 2019

Despite a provincially-imposed deadline of January 1st, 2019, 26 of Quebec’s 48 universities and CEGEPs have yet to update their sexual violence policies, reports the Montreal Gazette. According to CBC, the law requires institutions to have sexual violence policies in place for social activities, provide mandatory training in place for students, create a complaints process, and explicitly include sexual violence in their code of conduct. Former Education Minister Hélène David told CBC that she is “disappointed” that many institutions have not yet updated their policies. “It has been 13 months since the law was adopted and it was very clear,” she said. Montreal Gazette |CBC (QC)
