- Is my call confidential?
Absolutely! You can choose to remain anonymous. If you are asked for identifying information it’s for statistical data purposes and you can choose not to answer.
If you have knowledge or suspicion of the sexual abuse of a child (under 16 years of age) you have a duty to report this to the Ministry of Social Services. If you provide identifying information about a victim or perpetrator of child sexual abuse during the call, we have a duty to report to the Ministry on your behalf.
- I don’t live in Saskatoon. Are there other crisis lines available in Saskatchewan?
Yes! Sexual Assault Services of Saskatchewan has up-to-date listings.
