Students for Consent

The SA empowers students to challenge rape culture and promote consent culture. We seek to support survivors of sexual violence and inform our community about the effects of sexual violence and rape culture on our campus.

Here are the facts:

  • 90% of sexual assaults go unreported.
  • 82% of reported sexual assaults are committed by someone known to the survivor.
  • Just because it wasn’t rape, doesn’t mean it wasn’t sexual assault. Sexual assault includes any form of unwanted sexual contact. Many forms of sexual violence involve no physical contact at all, like stalking or persistent pressure.
  • Some individuals are at a higher risk of being targeted for sexual violence because they face multiple prejudices and stereotypes.

Water Bottle Free Campus

The SA is committed to supporting a water bottle free campus. We no longer sell bottled water at the Tuck Shops or E.P. Taylor’s. We give out reusable water bottles throughout the year and offer refill stations in our spaces. We encourage students, staff and all members of the community to stop using disposable water bottles.

Here are the facts:

  • It takes three litres of water to create one litre of bottled water.
  • Bottled water is up to 10,000 times more expensive than tap water.
  • Since 2000, more than 50% of bottled water products have been recalled by the Canadian Food Agency.
  • An estimated 86% of plastic bottles in Ontario are not recycled.
  • In 2010, only 6% of bottled water factories were inspected for health & safety.
