Project Champion

In 2018, Project Champion was made possible thanks to the Ministry of Safety and Correctional Services Proceeds of Crime Front-line policing grant. Project Champion, in collaboration with community partners, helps lay the groundwork for the implementation of a multi-sector collaborative rapid intervention service delivery strategy, while ensuring that there is no gap in services for Survivors of sexual assault. Project Champion is designed using a Survivor-centered perspective, as all community partners involved in the external review process and awareness strategy represent the voices of Survivors. The overall goals of the project are to increase the reporting of sexual assault incidents, increase collaboration between current and prospective community partners and enhance investigative processes for the police:

  • Multi-sector response to victims of sexual assault
  • Increased public awareness and education on sexual assault and violence to assist in prevention
  • Ensuring that Survivors are offered victim support services through a culturally sensitive perspective, ensuring holistic response to sexual assaults
  • Ensuring that Survivors reporting incidents of sexual assault to police, hospital or other community entities obtain immediate and appropriate investigative, court, medical, emotional and physical supports


Any form of sexual activity without consent is sexual assault. Consent is legally required and necessary. We are proud to launch our collaboration video that discusses the importance of obtaining consent, the law around consent, and some support options available to individuals affected by sexual violence.

The Greater Sudbury Police Service is proud to partner with Laurentian University Equity Diversity and Human Rights Office (EDRHO), Cambrian College, Collège Boréal, and Sudbury & Area Victim Services to raise awareness on the importance of consent
