What is the RISE PROGRAM?

The RISE program provides free legal resources and support to people who have experienced sexual violence and workplace sexual harassment.

Our legal resources include:

  • legal information;
  • free advice from a lawyer for up to four hours;
  • support navigating the justice system; and
  • referrals to other community support services.

We are here to help. Our services are confidential.

The RISE program has been made possible by a five-year funding agreement with Justice Canada and a two-year funding agreement with the PEI Department of Justice and Public Safety.

To be eligible for this program, you must be:

  • a victim of sexual violence or workplace sexual harassment;
  • a current resident of PEI and/or a person who experienced sexual violence or workplace sexual harassment on PEI; and
  • at least 16 years or older.
