Sexual Violence Policy June 20, 2019

Policy Application

The Policy applies to all students of Kingsway Trucking College.

The Scope

The Policy applies to complaints of sexual violence that have occurred on Kingsway Trucking College campus or at a one of our events and involve our students.

Purpose and Intent

All students of Kingsway Trucking College have a right to study in an environment free of sexual violence. This document sets out our policy on sexual violence involving our students, defines the

prohibited behaviours, and outlines our investigative processes for sexual violence.

Policy Objectives

Kingsway Trucking College is committed to providing its students with an educational environment free from sexual violence and treating its students who report incidents of sexual violence with dignity and respect.

Kingsway Trucking College has adopted this Sexual Violence Policy, which defines sexual violence and outlines its training, reporting, investigative and disciplinary responses to complaints  of sexual violence made by its students that have occurred on its campus, or at one of its events and involve its students.

The person accused of engaging in sexual violence will be referred to as the “Respondent” and the person making the allegation as the “Complainant”.

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.” (Sexual Violence and Harassment Action Plan Act (Supporting Survivors and Challenging Sexual Violence and Harassment), 2016, S.O. 2016, c. 2 - Bill 132; Schedule 5, 32.1)

Training, Reporting and Responding to Sexual Violence

(a) Kingsway Trucking College shall include a copy of the Sexual Violence Policy in every contract made between it and its students, and provide a copy of the Sexual Violence Policy to career college management (corporate directors, controlling shareholders, owners, partners,  other persons who manage or direct the career college’s affairs, and their agents), instructors, staff, other employees and contractors and train them about the policy and its processes of reporting,  investigating and responding to complaints of sexual violence involving its students. *Any company participating in offering student internships on their premises must provide an undertaking in writing that it is in compliance with all applicable legislation, including the  Ontario Human Rights Code and the Occupational Health and Safety Act and will provide  students access to those policies should they encounter issues relating to sexual violence in the workplace.

(b) The Sexual Violence Policy shall be published on its website.

(c) Career college management, instructors, staff, other employees and contractors of Kingsway Trucking College will report incidents of or complaints of sexual violence to the President upon becoming aware of them.

(d) Students who have been affected by sexual violence or who need information about support services should contact the President. Students can contact the President Joe Sum at (416) 873-3188 or by email below at any time.

(e) Subject to Section 4 below, to the extent it is possible, Kingsway Trucking College will  attempt to keep all personal information of persons involved in the investigation confidential except in those circumstances where it believes an individual is at imminent risk of self-harm, or of harming another, or there are reasonable grounds to believe that others on its campus or the broader community are at risk. This will be done by:

(i) ensuring that all complaints/reports and information gathered as a result of the complaint/reports will be only available to those who need to know for purposes of investigation, implementing safety measures and other circumstances that arise from any given case; and

(ii) ensuring that the documentation is kept in a separate file from that of the Complainant/student or the Respondent.

(f) Kingsway Trucking College recognizes the right of the Complainant not to report an incident  of or make a complaint about sexual violence or not request an investigation and not to participate in any investigation that may occur.

(g) Notwithstanding (f), in certain circumstances, Kingsway Trucking College may be required by law or its internal policies to initiate an internal investigation and/or inform police without the complainant’s consent if it believes the safety of members of its campus or the broader community is at risk.

(h) In all cases, including (f) above, Kingsway Trucking College will appropriately accommodate the needs of its students who are affected by sexual violence. Students seeking accommodation should contact the President.

In this regard, Kingsway Trucking College will assist students who have experienced sexual violence in obtaining counseling and medical care, and provide them with information about sexual violence supports and services available in the community as set out in Appendix 1 attached hereto. Students are not required to file a formal complaint in order to access supports and services.

(iv) determine what interim measures ought to be put in place pending the investigation process such as removal of the Respondent or seeking alternate methods of providing necessary course studies.

Once an investigation is initiated, the following will occur:

(i) the Complainant and the Respondent will be advised that they may ask another person to be present throughout the investigation;

(ii) interviewing the Complainant to ensure a complete understanding of the allegation and gathering additional information that may not have been included in the written complaint such as the date and time of the incident, the persons involved, the names of any person who witnessed the incident and a complete description of what occurred;

(iii) informing and interviewing the Respondent of the complaint, providing details of the   allegations and giving the Respondent an opportunity to respond to those allegations and to provide any witnesses the Respondent feels are essential to the investigation;

(iv) interviewing any person involved or who has, or may have, knowledge of the incident and any identified witnesses;

(v) providing reasonable updates to the Complainant and the Respondent about the status of the investigation; and
