Sex Work* Support and Resources

Career Services is a safe space for students and graduates to discuss sex work, seek related career guidance, and access internal and external support, and resources. Please note: As GBC employees, we have a duty to report any incidents of sexual harassment or violence that come to our attention, especially those occurring on the GBC campus or in connection with college activities. In addition, we also want to mention that we do not maintain records of or report any involvement in criminalized behaviours, such as sex work. For more information on GBC policies, and the relevant legislations that govern those policies, visit the Office of Anti-Racism, Equity and Human Rights Services (OAREHRS) website
