The Ontario Network of Sexual Assault/Domestic Violence Treatment Centres was established by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care in 1993 to provide leadership and support to 36 hospital-based sexual assault and domestic violence treatment centres across Ontario.
Our members are the staff and healthcare professionals of the SA/DV treatment centres that, together, form the Network. Our goal is to provide victims/survivors of sexual violence and domestic violence with comprehensive, quality care and support. Through collaboration in research, education and training activities, the Network strives to establish standardization in service provision across the province. The Network represents the collective 36 centres, lobbying for change and working to influence public policy.
The Network strives to be a source of information and expertise about the health and forensic care of victims/survivors of violence. Our members work closely with health and legal professionals and other community partners providing research, education, and training in the prevention and care/treatment of sexual assault and domestic violence.
