The decision to come forward is not an easy one and we understand that you need a safe place to tell your story, discuss your legal options, and get clear and practical advice about how to move forward and pursue justice.
It’s also important to note that it’s never too late to come forward. In Canada, there are no time limits for bringing civil lawsuits for physical and psychological injuries arising out of sexual assault. This means that you have legal options no matter when the assault occurred.
We understand that every person, every experience, and every situation is unique. Consultations can be done in person, over the phone, or by video conference. You can speak to your choice of a male or female lawyer and your privacy and confidentiality are protected.
You are not alone. When you are ready to share your story, we’re here for you.
