If someone makes you or anyone else feel unsafe or unwelcome, please report it as soon as possible. Harassment and other code of conduct violations reduce the value of our spaces and events for everyone. We want you to be happy and safe. People like you make our spaces and events better for all.
We understand that speaking about the harm we’ve experienced is difficult and often traumatizing. We strive to honor the courage of those who come forward. As such, we have several avenues for reporting harassment, discrimination and inappropriate behaviour:
Anonymous Report [Digital]
Formal Report [In Person]
Formal Report [Digital]

When reporting formally in person, our staff will ensure you are safe and cannot be overheard. They may involve other staff to ensure your report is managed properly. Once safe, we'll ask you to tell us about what happened. This can be upsetting, but we'll handle it as respectfully as possible, and you can bring someone to support you. You won't be asked to confront anyone and we won't tell anyone who you are.
Our team will be happy to help you connect with third party resources and supports including options for free counselling, support groups, mental health services and sexual assault supports.
