Sexual assault is any sexual conduct that a person does not consent to. It involves all unwanted sexual contact including kissing, groping, rape and enforced sexual acts.  

Consent must be freely given, reversible, informed, enthusiastic, and specific. Someone must have the capacity to give consent, meaning they are not under the influence of drugs, alcohol, threats, or violence, and that they understand the consequences of giving consent. 

Sexual harassment and misconduct refer to a broad range of inappropriate, unwelcome behaviours of a sexual nature. See the sexual harassment and misconduct page for more information.
