What to do in case of sexual assault

Start with SARC

Concordia’s Sexual Assault Resource Centre (SARC) is central to the new Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) - now in operation to comply with Concordia's newly adopted policy regarding sexual violence.  The SARC coordinator acts as a single point of contact for first response in cases of sexual violence and will – with the consent of survivors – provide support and manage cases  through coordination across internal and external resources. If you are in immediate danger, please call Security at 514-848-3717, or ext. 3717 if you are using a university phone.

PLEASE NOTE: SARC will be closed between July 20 and August 6, 2018. If you need urgent assistance during this time please contact campus security at 514-848-3717 or call 911. For 24/7 support you can call the Montreal Sexual Assault Crisis Line: 514-933-9007

Obtain physical and psychological care at a designated centre

All regions of Quebec have designated centres that offer services especially for people that have been sexually assaulted and require a health assessment, a medical exam or a forensic interview - available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

It is recommended:

  • If you were assaulted less than 5 days ago, go to a designated centre as soon as possible.
  • If you were assaulted more than 6 days ago, call ahead and make an appointment.
  • If you were assaulted over a year ago, contact another resource.
