SAVIS provides free and confidential one-on-one, online and telephone counselling from a feminist perspective to all survivors of sexual violence over the age of 16. In-person counselling is available at our Oakville Location. We understand that women experience oppression in varying configurations and intensity depending on their individual backgrounds and this may have an additional impact on those already facing sexual abuse. Our counsellors work from an anti-racist and anti-oppressive viewpoint to provide assessments that are non-directive and non-judgemental.
