What is the CAMP project?

The CAMP program aims to address workplace sexual harassment and assault and to improve safety for vulnerable, isolated workers by providing industry-specific sexual violence education and resource development. CAMP works in collaboration with industries and government, workers and supervisors, to explore system changes aimed at reducing risk in remote workplaces. NSDP believes that safety, comfort and representation is best addressed through partnerships between companies and community service providers. CAMP works closely with companies to understand their unique environments and engage workers in education and conversation that feels representative of their experiences. Along with annual educational outreach, CAMP provides support and referrals for victims/survivors and employers on an as-needed basis, and is available to apply an anti-violence, victim-centred and trauma-informed lens to sexual violence policy and procedure improvements and to offer guidance on navigating sensitive and complex workplace incidents of sexual harassment or assault.

OUR GOALS ARE TO

  • Improve safety and increase awareness surrounding sexual assault/harassment in the workplace
  • Provide education/support
  • Assist with the development of new policies/procedures
  • Develop new sexual violence training tools for the industry
