What is Sexual Assault or Harassment?

Sexual assault is any type of sexual contact or behaviour that occurs without the explicit consent of the recipient. Consent means a person must freely (without coercion, force, intimidation or any other means) agree to the activity.

Sexual harassment is unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature that causes a person to feel offended, humilitated or intimidated, including sexual assault.
