Many Canadians travel abroad as staff and volunteers to improve the lives of people in developing countries and enrich their own lives. In most cases, all goes well. Nonetheless, a few Canadians overseas have been subjected to sexual violence in the course of their assignments. GAC provides Travel Advice and Advisories to help you prepare to safely travel abroad, as well as specific guidelines related to sexual assault abroad. Prevention is an important topic covered throughout the collaborative relationship with GAC partnership leads prior to departure and risk management check-ins.
