About Us

The Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton is a feminist-based not-for-profit charitable organization that supports children, adolescents, and adults who have experienced sexual abuse or assault, and educates the public about sexual violence.

Vision: A world free of sexual violence

Mission: The Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton (SACE) exists to empower individuals affected by sexual abuse and assault, and empower communities to take action against sexual violence.

We believe:

  • Sexual violence is an abuse of power and trust
  • People can heal
  • In valuing diversity and respecting all people
  • Individuals should be free to make their own life choices
  • Each person should have the opportunity to learn and grow
  • In creating a safe environment and maintaining confidentiality
  • Inability to pay should not be a barrier to receiving service
  • In providing support and advocacy for people who have been affected by sexual violence
  • Services must be accessible to children, adolescents, and adults of all genders
  • Communities must take action to protect vulnerable people and to become free from violence
  • Offenders, not victims, must take responsibility for violence
  • Teamwork is essential
  • Volunteers are crucial to our agency and provide a link to the community
