Provincial funding fails to meet increased needs: researcher
Nipissing University researchers are looking at the supports provided by Muskoka Parry Sound Sexual Assault Services to Indigenous survivors of sexual assault.
Assistant professor of Indigenous studies Nancy Stevens and professor of gender equality and social justice Rosemary Nagy will examine the organization’s history of providing Indigenous-specific supports for survivors of sexual assault.
“Despite extremely high rates of victimizations, there has been virtually no research or writing done about mainstream community sexual assault centres or services providing culturally appropriate supports to their Indigenous clients,” said Stevens in a media release.
