This webinar, produced by Éducaloi, will help you solidify your knowledge of the various sexual offences and their corresponding legal process. The video explains in detail the reporting process for both adults and teenagers.
The webinar is divided into two parts, each lasting just under twenty minutes. Several keywords appear on the screen throughout the presentation, which deals with sexual assault, luring and non-consensual sharing of sexual photos, among other things. The judicial process is presented clearly and in detail, reminding us that it is difficult to predict the outcome before the end.
Supporting people who wish to report
Although the content may at first glance seem obvious to some professionals, a reminder of the specific definitions used in the legal system may be necessary. With a better understanding of sexual offences in the Criminal Code, you will be able to provide survivors with better support and enlightenment. You could also share the video directly with someone who simply wants to learn more.
However, it is important to remember that filing a formal report following a crime of a sexual nature is a personal choice. Being well informed about what is involved in such a process beforehand can help people get through it easier.
