What is the CAMP security project?

Since 2018, NSDP has been working in partnership with Northern BC reforestation companies to combat sexual harassment and assault in tree planting camps. Due to multiple requests for support, NSDP has developed a presentation on workplace sexual harassment/assault tailored to the reforestation industry and planting camps. We travel to bush camps and attend management meetings to facilitate discussion about harassment and assault in the workplace and open up the discussion on sexual violence in camps. The presentations offer information on consent, bystander intervention, reporting and disclosure options, support for victims, company policies and procedures, etc. specific to the reforestation industry. NSDP continues to be an on-call support for planting companies who are in need of resources or are trying to manage incidents in camp.

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

SURVEY STATISTICS (As of January 2020)

  • 87% of respondents feel camps should host sexual harassment/assault training at the start of each season and 61% think this training should be provided by an external agency rather than by the company themselves
  • 74% say they would be more likely to apply for a job with a company that had a sexual violence safety certification
  • Only 33% of respondents feel that policies and procedures are enough; most respondents want the company to do more
