Note: Whitehorse RCMP is a signatory to Together for Safety.

On September 18th, 2017, the signatories of Together for Safety released three videos to provide information on options for victims of violence.

The videos are titled:

  • Reporting Domestic Violence and Sexualized Assault in Whitehorse, Yukon;
  • Options for Victims of Sexualized Assault in Whitehorse, Yukon;
  • Options for Victims of Domestic Violence in Whitehorse, Yukon.

GBP Creative produced the videos and many community partners contributed information and participated in the production, such as Public Prosecution Service of Canada, Victim Services, Whitehorse General Hospital, and the Kwanlin Dün Health Centre.

The purpose of the video series is to provide information about the criminal justice system, available options, and support services to victims of sexualized assault or domestic violence.

During a crisis, it's helpful for victims to know which options are available to them, and what each one could look like. Knowing what to expect can be an important part of making an informed choice.
