How the SVSPO Can Help

We offer free, confidential support for all SFU and FIC community members (students and employees) who have experienced sexual violence. We also assist students and employees who have witnessed sexual violence or who are providing support to someone else.

To access the SVSPO’s support services:

  • It does not matter when or where the sexual violence occurred.
  • A report is not required or expected.

How to contact us

Our Case Managers are available Monday-Friday, 9am-4:30pm (excluding statutory holidays).

Here are some of the ways we can help:

  • Referrals to on- and off-campus support services and resources as needed
  • Help with academic, workplace or other accommodations at SFU or FIC
  • Information on reporting options available to you and assistance with accessing these options
  • Information about personal privacy and confidentiality
  • Personalized safety planning
  • Help navigating court processes, if needed
  • Transportation to the hospital, police or other emergency services
  • Information packages for you or a peer who has experienced sexual violence
  • We also provide support and advice for students who have been named in an incident of sexual violence. See Resources for Respondents.

Support is available in multiple ways: in-person on any of SFU's three campuses or anywhere in the Lower Mainland or by phone, email, text, or Zoom. No matter where you are located, our case managers can support you.
