What happens to my report?

Your report will become a part of a databank that will help the community in several ways.

For instance, this network can look at where incidents are primarily happening, when they are happening, to whom they are happening, and work as a team to provide those people affected with better support or community protection.

As well, the network can provide education to perpetrators and seek to change attitudes toward race.

If requested, your report is used to provide services to you, such as counselling, support for justice, safety, and access to mediation processes.

If appropriate, your report will be made known to policing authorities so they can take action against incidents that fall under the criminal code.

Confidential & Private

Your report is confidential and will not be used to identify you in any way.

During your report, you may give contact information to the network if you request that we follow-up — for example, to receive support services, counselling, or help to go to police.

Aliases can be used for reporting but contact information when supplied must be real.

Report information is confidential and will never be shared as stories. Any use of reports as examples will remove all identifying information before being used.

**Disclaimer: It is our responsibility under the law to report to the appropriate authority any threats of violence, disclosures of criminal intent or intent to self-harm.
