Consent: Ontario Sex-Education Curriculum 

Amongst other important updates, Ontario’s new sex-education curriculum will include consent.

Premier Kathleen Wynne has asked that the issue of consent be added to Ontario’s revamped sex-education curriculum, which will be in schools in September. With cases of sexual harassment and sexual violence in the media and public spotlight in recent months, Wynne directed the Ministry of Education to include things such as healthy relationships and consent in the new learning documents.  

OCRCC applauds this much-needed update! This important move will support young people in Ontario to better understand their rights when it comes to saying Yes and No to sexual activity.
