Supporting Survivors of Gender Based Violence and Sexual Assault Project


This project provides information and access to legal and social work services to those who may be experiencing gender based violence or sexual assault. Confidential independent legal advice, social work support, and referrals are available.

The Supporting Survivors of Gender Based Violence and Sexual Assault project at Legal Assistance of Windsor offers: 

  • Information on legal rights, options, and court systems in family, criminal, and other areas of law

  • Ongoing independent legal advice and advocacy

  • Information on and assistance in accessing social services

  • Counselling services and safety planning

  • Public legal education sessions on gender based violence and sexual assault

We also offer information sessions for agencies and service providers on legal obligations and responsibilities around gender based violence and sexual assault.

People of all genders who have experienced sexual assault or intimate partner violence (including physical, sexual, emotional or financial abuse) are able to access these services, regardless of their income.

If you would like to know more about this project, or to make a referral, please contact us at 519-256-7831.


In March 2023, LAW's GBVSA program hosted Pam Cross, Canadian feminist lawyer and advocacy director of Luke's Place, who gave a presentation on "Gender Based Violence: What Family Lawyers Need to Know." If you are a family lawyer who would like to see a video recording of the presentation, please email LAW's Service Coordinator Jade Wallace at jade.wallace[at] and we will email you a link.
