Government repeals Ontario’s Sex Education Curriculum: OCRCC Responds
This September, Ontario will revert to an outdated 1998 sex-ed curriculum. Ontario Coalition of Rape Crisis Centres (OCRCC) believes that this shift will adversely impact Ontario’s young people.
Providing comprehensive sex-ed is first and foremost “about making sure that young people receive the information they need and are entitled to in order to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives” (Action Canada for Sexual Health & Rights).
With the repealing of the 2015 sex-ed curriculum, Ontario youth will miss out vital content, including education which fosters the prevention of sexual violence.
