Justice Canada Knowledge Exchange 2017: The criminal justice system’s responses to sexual assault against adults

On March 7-8, 2017, Justice Canada hosted a knowledge exchange focused on the criminal justice system’s responses to sexual assault against adults. The day’s objective was to better understand why, despite Canada’s robust criminal laws related to sexual assault, rates of reporting, prosecution, and conviction remain low. Speakers also explored how the criminal justice system’s responses to sexual assault could be improved, by looking at promising practices and innovative ideas from within Canada and from other common-law jurisdictions.
