FORENSIC EXAMS

The purpose of this exam is to collect DNA and other evidence that can be used should you wish to report the sexual assault to authorities. It is completed at a local hospital and should be conducted within seven days of the assault. 

You do not have to report at the time of the exam, but the collection process allows evidence to be securely stored for up to one year.  

We can provide company and transportation to either Vancouver General or  Surrey Memorial for the exam.
