The Policy applies to incidents and complaints of sexual misconduct, sexual violence, or sexual harassment that have occurred on Travel College Canada career college campus or at a Travel College Canada career college event and involve members of the career college community as defined in paragraph one, the Policy Application.
Purpose and Intent
All members of Travel College Canada career college community have a right to study and work in an environment free of sexual violence and sexual harassment.
This document sets out our policy on sexual misconduct, sexual violence, and sexual harassment; defines the prohibited behaviours; outlines our investigative processes for sexual misconduct, sexual violence, and sexual harassment; and establishes consequences for violations, particularly in relation to sexual misconduct against a student.
Travel College Canada is committed to providing members of our career college community an educational environment free from sexual misconduct, sexual violence, and sexual harassment and treating those individuals who report incidents of sexual misconduct, sexual violence, or sexual harassment with dignity and respect.
To that end Travel College Canada will educate and train faculty, staff and students about this Policy and how to identify situations that involve, or could progress into sexual misconduct, sexual violence, or sexual harassment and how to reduce these forms of prohibited behaviours.
This Policy prohibits sexual misconduct, which includes sexual abuse, sexual violence and sexual harassment.
Sexual Harassment includes:
(a) any course of vexatious comment or conduct of a sexual nature and/or relating to sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression

bragging about sexual prowess; and/or
physical contact such as touching, patting, or pinching, with an underlying sexual connotation; as well as
(b) sexual solicitation or advance made by a person in a position to confer, grant or deny a benefit or advancement to the person where the person making the solicitation or advance knows or ought reasonably to know that it is unwelcome.
Sexual Violence includes:
sexual assault which is any type of an unwanted sex act done by one person to another, without that person’s consent, that violates the sexual integrity of an individual ranging from unwanted touching to penetration;
any violence, whether physical or psychological or otherwise, carried out through sexual means or by targeting sexuality, including sexual abuse; and

(a) physical sexual relations with the student, touching of a sexual nature of the student, or behaviour or remarks of a sexual nature toward the student by an employee of Travel College Canada where,
the act constitutes an offence under the Criminal Code (Canada);
the act infringes the right of the student under clause 7(3)(a) of the Human Rights Code to be free from a sexual solicitation or advance; and/or
the act of an employee, in relation to a student, that constitutes sexual violence and sexual harassment as defined herein, or which contravenes this policy or any other policy, rule or other requirement of Travel College Canada respecting sexual relations between employees and students; as well as
(b) any conduct by an employee of Travel College Canada that infringes the right of the student under clause 7(3)(b) of the Human Rights Code to be free from a reprisal or threat of reprisal for the rejection of a sexual solicitation or advance.
All members of our career college community are expected to:
take all reasonable steps to prevent sexual misconduct, sexual violence and sexual harassment on our career college campus or events; and

Reporting Sexual Misconduct, Sexual Violence & Sexual Harassment
Incidents of sexual misconduct, sexual violence or sexual harassment against a student should be reported by any member of our career college community to Travel College Canada. Incidents of sexual misconduct, sexual violence or sexual harassment against someone other than a student should be reported to Travel College Canada.
Students that report an incident of, or make a complaint about, sexual misconduct, sexual violence, or sexual harassment, in good faith, will not be subject to discipline or sanctions for violations of the Travel College Canada policies relating to drug or alcohol use at the time the alleged sexual misconduct, sexual violence, or sexual harassment occurrence.

To the extent it is possible, Travel College Canada will attempt to keep all information disclosed confidential except in those circumstances it believes an individual is at imminent risk of self-harm, or of harming another, there are reasonable grounds to believe that others in our career community are at risk, or where disclosure is required by law.
Travel College Canada recognizes the right of the complainant to determine whether her or his complaint will be dealt with by the police and/or Travel College Canada. However, in certain circumstances, Travel College Canada may be required by law or its internal policies to initiate an internal investigation and/or inform police or other officials without the complainant’s consent, if it believes the safety of members of its career college community is at risk.
Upon a complaint of alleged sexual misconduct, sexual violence or sexual harassment being made, the Travel College Canada will initiate an investigation, including as follows:
determining whether the incident should be referred immediately to police;
meeting with the complainant to determine the date and time of the incident, the persons involved, the names of any person who witnessed the incident and a complete description of what occurred;
interviewing the complainant, any person involved in the incident and any identified witnesses;
interviewing any other person who may have knowledge of incidents related to the complaint or any other similar incidents;
informing the respondent of the complaint, providing details of the allegations and giving the respondent an opportunity to respond to those allegations;
providing reasonable updates to the complainant and the respondent about the status of the investigation; and
determining what disciplinary/corrective action, if any, should be taken.

the discharge or disciplinary measure shall be deemed to be for just cause for all purposes;
the employee shall not be entitled to notice of termination or termination pay or any other compensation or restitution as a result of the discharge or disciplinary measure; and
despite subsection 48 (17) of the Labour Relations Act, 1995, and despite any provision of a collective agreement or employment contract specifying a penalty for the infraction, no arbitrator, arbitration board or other adjudicator shall substitute any other penalty for the discharge or disciplinary measure imposed by Travel College Canada.
If an employee commits an act of sexual misconduct and the employee is discharged or the employee resigns from their employment due to an act of sexual misconduct, Travel College Canada shall not subsequently re-employ that employee.
If Travel College Canada determines that an individual has become re-employed by Travel College Canada, contrary to this policy in relation to sexual misconduct, the employee shall be discharged and the above conditions of termination shall continue to apply.
Criminal and Civil Proceedings
In cases where criminal proceedings are initiated, Travel College Canada will assist police agencies, lawyers, insurance companies, and courts to the fullest extent.
Where criminal and/or civil proceedings are commenced in respect of allegations of sexual misconduct, sexual violence or sexual harassment, Travel College Canada may conduct its own independent investigation and make its own determination in accordance with its own policies and procedures.
Making False Statements
