About Us & WGE Project
The Ontario Coalition of Rape Crisis Centres (OCRCC) works toward the prevention and eradication of sexual assault. Our membership includes sexual assault centres from across of Ontario, offering counselling, information and support services to survivors of sexual violence. The first rape crisis centre in Ontario opened in 1974, driven by an identified need for more comprehensive and socially-contextualized support to survivor-victims. Today, services include 24-hour crisis counselling; accompaniment to the hospital, court and/or police station; advocacy for victims and referrals; face to face counselling; outreach support including diversity work; information and support for partners, families and friends of survivors; and public education on sexual violence.
Funded by the Department for Women and Gender Equality (WGE), our four-year Fostering Capacity in Sexual Assault Centres in the #MeToo Era Project will see OCRCC focus its energies and membership engagement on the current climate facing sexual assault centres. OCRCC will aim to foster:
Improved organizational financial health
A strategic planning process
Our Gender-based Analysis + policies and practices.
Initiatives funded under the WGE capacity-building stream will “contribute to a viable women’s movement in Canada to advance gender equality”, “increase organizational capacity and help organizations work collectively to address gender equality issues”.
