About Us: Ontario Coalition of Rape Crisis Centres (OCRCC)

 

The Ontario Coalition of Rape Crisis Centres (OCRCC) works toward the prevention and eradication of sexual assault. The Coalition recognizes that violence against women is one of the strongest indicators of prevailing societal attitudes towards women. Our membership includes sexual assault centres from across Ontario, offering counselling, information and support services to survivors of sexual violence, including childhood sexual abuse and incest.

 

As of 2013, 26 of Ontario’s 30 English-language Sexual Assault Centres are members of OCRCC.

 

We believe that through united action, the Coalition can achieve more than individuals and individual groups.  The Coalition is itself the collective efforts of the individuals and groups involved. OCRCC does not substitute or oversee the work of autonomous Rape Crisis Centres...instead, we provide a mechanism for communication, education and mobilization for centres.
