About the ORCC

The ORCC is committed to fostering a space that is anti-racist, trans & queer-centered, anti-oppressive, anti-colonialist, and feminist. We define our shared values within a third-wave, intersectional feminist understanding, which acknowledges the ways that different systems of oppression perpetuate and underpin the existence of sexual and gender-based violence, and also impact the ways in which these forms of violence are experienced within our communities. In order to eliminate sexual and gender-based violence, we must always be working to end all systems of oppression.

Our core services include a 24/hr volunteer-run Crisis Line, short and long-term individual counselling and group counselling, advocacy and accompaniment, and public education workshops and trainings. All of our support services are completely confidential and offered free of charge to all cis and trans women, trans men, two-spirit, and gender non-binary survivors over the age of 16.
