Isempower is delighted to partner with MOSAIC and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) to bring together a webinar to help make international students safe in Canada - Know Your Rights as International Students. Your safety is the priority. An incident is just the tip of the iceberg, a sign of a much bigger problem below the surface.

International students are perceived as vulnerable and easy targets for exploitation, gender-based violence, abuse, and sexual victimization. This webinar will help international students to enhance their safety against violence and exploitation; increase awareness and reduce the risk and vulnerability to potential perpetrators and increase accessibility to direct support and their decision to report to the police.

After this webinar, you will learn about:

Your rights as an international student
Real cases of violence against International Students
Consent, Disclosure, and Report
Procedure to report an incident to the police
Community, justice, and legal resources
Safety tips from RCMP
