On this page you can find out more about who we are as an agency—because our history, vision, and values are a big part of not just why, but also how, we do the work that we do.
What We Do
We’re here for all people who have experienced sexual assault. People of any age, gender, sexual orientation, and background can access our services without judgment. Their loved ones need us too—we help them feel confident in the support they’re providing. And when the public is grappling with issues related to sexual assault, SACE is there to educate our community and provide a professional perspective.
To do this, our mandate at SACE is to provide an extensive range of support services for people who experience sexual violence, including: crisis support, counselling, court support, and advocacy. We also aim to foster prevention of sexual violence through direct public education and advisory consultation with groups and agencies undertaking their own prevention efforts.
Our Core Beliefs
Who we are is constantly evolving as we learn and grow to better meet the needs of our clients and community- but we have never forgotten our grassroots beginning or the importance of volunteers to the organization.
