Released in 2022, Promising Practices for Sexual Violence Distance Counselling, was created by the Sexual Assault Centre Kingston (SACK), Ending Violence Association of Canada, and Anova. They had built upon the work done through the Going-TheDistance project undertaken by SACK funded by Women and Gender Equality.

We seek to encourage a better understanding of sexual violence by shining a light on the societal attitudes and beliefs that prevent individuals, families, and communities from living free from threat, fear, or experience of sexual violence.

We amplify the voices of our member agencies and survivors of sexual violence to raise awareness of the realities they face.
