File a Report

If you are considering filing a report of sexual violence, then we encourage you to first ask questions, understand the processes available (mediation/investigation), and learn about your rights, support services, and other resources. 

To learn more, you can either book an appointment directly with OSVRSE here or contact our office (OMR) via our Book a Consultation page.

 

Scope of McGill's Policy against Sexual Violence

  • The incident(s) occurred in a University context
  • The respondent is a member of the University community, both at the time of the incident(s) and at the time of filing the report.

Can I file a report as a third party and/or anonymously?

Yes. Third-party* and/or anonymous reports may be investigated where sufficient evidence exists and where such an investigation would not violate procedural fairness. Third-party and/or anonymous reports cannot go to mediation. An individual identified as the person who directly experienced sexual violence in a third-party or anonymous report has the right to be informed of an investigation triggered by such a report and can choose whether or not to participate in the process. 

In an investigation process, please note that third-party and/or anonymous reporters will not receive the investigation report at the end of the investigation or information about the resolution of the complaint.

*A third-party report is a report made by someone other than the person alleged to have experienced sexual violence.

I’m not sure whether I want to file a report through McGill’s Policy against Sexual Violence. What else can I do?

  • Seek support
    Take care of yourself and know that you don’t have to deal with sexual violence alone. Whether or not you decide to make a formal report through McGill’s Policy against Sexual Violence, seek support from your friends, family, and McGill support services.
  • Try to write down what happened
    In as much detail as possible, write down what happened, where and when it happened, and who was present. You can provide this documentation if you decide to file a formal report through McGill’s Policy against Sexual Violence later on.
