Sexual Harassment

Sexual Violence & Harassment Policy

Private Career College Students

Amended: May 15, 2017

Policy Application
This policy applies to all Private Career College students of Flycanadian Inc.

The Scope
The policy applies to complaints of sexual violence that have occurred at the Flycanadian campus or at one of our events and involve our students.

Purpose and Intent
All of Flycanadian Private Career College students have a right to study in an environment free of sexual violence. This document sets out Flycanadian's policy on sexual violence involving Private Career College students, defines the prohibited behaviors, and outlines our investigative processes.

Policy Objectives
Flycanadian is committed to providing students with an educational environment free from sexual violence and treating those students who report incidents of sexual violence with dignity and respect. A copy of the policy will be provided to all private career college students, and educate them together with management and employees about this policy and how to identify situations that involve, or could progress into sexual violence against students and how to reduce it.

Where a complaint has been made, under this policy, of sexual violence Flycanadian will take all reasonable steps to investigate it, including as follows:

Definition of sexual violence

"Sexual violence" means any sexual act or act targeting a person's sexuality, gender identity or gender expression, whether the act is physical or psychological in nature, that is committed, threatened or attempted against a person without the person’s consent, and includes sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking, indecent exposure, voyeurism and sexual exploitation.

Reporting and Responding to Sexual Violence

Students and staff of Flycanadian will take all reasonable steps to prevent sexual violence involving students on campus or at a Flycanadian event by reporting immediately to the CFI if a student has been subject to, or they have witnessed or have knowledge of sexual violence involving students, or have reason to believe that sexual violence has occurred or may occur which involves a student.

Once Flycanadian has received a report of sexual violence, appropriate support and other resources will be offered to the person who has experienced sexual violence, as well as to any person or group against whom an allegation of sexual violence is made.

The CFI recognizes the right of the complainant to determine how her or his complaint will be dealt with. However, in certain circumstances, the CFI may be required by law or internal policies to initiate an internal investigation and/or inform police without the complainant’s concern, if believed the safety of members on campus or broader community are at risk.
A complainant seeking accommodation should contact the CFI during normal business hours. 24 hour support resources throughout Ontario are listed in Appendix 1.

Investigative Reports of Sexual Violence

A complaint of sexual violence may be filed under this policy, by any Private Career College student, to the CFI in writing. A complainant may ask another person to be present during the investigation.

Upon a complaint of alleged sexual violence being made the General Manager will initiate an investigation, including as follows:

Disciplinary Measures

If it is determined by Flycanadian that a Private Career College student has been involved in sexual violence, immediate disciplinary or corrective action will be taken up to and including termination of employment of instructors or staff or expulsion of a student. In cases where criminal proceedings are initiated, Flycanadian will assist police agencies, lawyers, insurance companies, and courts to the fullest extent. Where criminal and/or civil proceedings are commenced in respect of allegations of sexual violence Flycanadian may conduct its own independent investigation and make its own determination in accordance with its own policies and procedures.

Confidentiality

Confidentiality is an important principal in creating an environment where those who have experienced sexual violence feel safe to disclose and seek support and accommodation. The privacy and confidentiality of all members of Flycanadian's community involved in any complaint, will be protected to the extent possible, but may be precluded where, an individual may be at risk of self-harm or harming another, reporting is required by law or when Flycanadian has an obligation to investigate.

Making False Statements

It is a violation of this policy for anyone to knowingly make a false complaint of sexual violence or to provide false information about a complaint. Individuals who violate this policy are subject to disciplinary and/or corrective action, up to and including termination of employment or instructors or staff or expulsion of a student.

Reprisal

It is a violation of this policy to retaliate or threaten to retaliate against a complainant who has brought forward a complaint of sexual violence, provided information related to a complaint, or otherwise been involved in the complaint investigation process.

Review

This policy will be reviewed every three years. Flycanadian shall ensure that student input is considered, in accordance with any regulations, every time the policy is renewed or amended.

Maintenance of Statistics

Flycanadian will maintain annual statistics, without identifying information, on disclosed and reported incidents of sexual violence on campus in accordance with Private Career Colleges Act and provincial regulations.

Collection of Student Data

Flycanadian shall collect and be prepared to provide upon request by the Superintendent of Private Career Colleges such data and information as required according to Subsection 32.3(8), (9) and (10) of Schedule 5 of the Private Career Colleges Act, 2005 as amended
