Only yes means yes

Workshop summary

This workshop explores the gap between colonial legal and ethical standards of consent and supports participants to create a culture of consent that goes far beyond the requirements of colonial law. 

Although the criminal legal system is flawed, knowing how it works can be helpful for making informed decisions. This workshop looks at legal and non-legal options available to adult survivors of sexual assault. 

Only Yes Means Yes was developed in collaboration with post-secondary students and originally designed for campus settings. We can also adapt it for other groups of adults (aged 19 or older). 


Our workshops are available for booking at least six weeks in advance of your desired date. Please email Cecile at to make a booking.

We take a flexible approach. We appreciate an honorarium if you have the budget for that. We are committed to making our education programs accessible and can sometimes offer this workshop for free or for a lower fee if that would be better for you.

This workshop will be offered via Zoom. We hope to have it available in summer 2023.

The development of this workshop was made possible by generous funding from the Law Foundation of BC, Health Sciences Association, the Province of British Columbia, Impacts, and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.

We acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia for the ongoing delivery of this workshop.
