The Policy is administered by two Anti-Violence Coordinators who facilitate training, lead alternate resolution processes and conduct investigations, and provide support to people who have experienced sexual violence.
If an individual wants to disclose an incident of sexual or gendered violence, they can contact the Anti-Violence Coordinators at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are not sure if your experiences fit within the GSVP or are unsure of your next steps, the AVCs can assist you.
First, the AVC will discuss resources and accommodations. This could include student-run or institutional resources at McGill or resources in the wider Montreal area. Accommodations could include workplace accommodations or assistance receiving institutional accommodations like exam deferrals, class changes, housing changes, or financial support.
To initiate a complaint, the individual can submit, written complaint to the AVCs detailing the situation. They can also set up a meeting with the AVCs to assist in filing a complaint. The AVCs will then determine if the complaint falls within the scope of the policy. If the complaint does fall within the scope, and If an individual would like to proceed with a form of resolution, there are two options – alternation resolution or formal investigation

A formal investigation process can be initiated upon the request of a complainant to investigate and address an incident or incidents of gendered and/or sexual violence. Possible outcomes include:
