Career College Sexual Violence Policy

Sexual Violence Policy
A2Z Driving School is committed to providing its students with an educational environment free from sexual violence and treating its students who report incidents of sexual violence with dignity and respect.
A2Z Driving School has adopted this Sexual Violence Policy, which defines sexual violence and outlines its training, reporting, investigative, and disciplinary responses to complaints of sexual violence made by its students that have occurred on its campus, or at one of its events and involves its students.
The person accused of engaging in sexual violence will be referred to as the “Respondent” and the person making the allegation as the “Complainant”.

Definition of Sexual Violence
Sexual violence means any sexual act or acts targeting a person’s sexuality, gender identity, or gender expression, whether the act is physical or psychological in nature, that is committed, threatened, or attempted against a person without the person’s consent, and includes sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking, indecent exposure, voyeurism, and sexual exploitation.

Training, Reporting and Responding to Sexual Violence
A2Z Driving School will include a copy of the Sexual Violence Policy in every contract made between it and its students, and provide a copy of the Sexual Violence Policy to career college management (corporate directors, controlling shareholders, owners, partners, other persons who manage or direct the career college’s affairs, and their agents), instructors, staff, other employees and contractors and train them about the policy and its processes of reporting, investigating and responding to complaints of sexual violence involving its students. *Any company participating in offering student internships on their premises must provide an undertaking in writing that it is in compliance with all applicable legislation, including the Ontario Human Rights Code and the Occupational Health and Safety Act, and will provide students access to those policies should they encounter issues relating to sexual violence in the workplace.
The Sexual Violence Policy shall be published on its website (or where the Career College does not have a website in a conspicuous location on each of its campuses). Career college management, instructors, staff, other employees, and contractors ofA2Z Driving School will report incidents of or complaints of sexual violence to Narinderpal Singh JaswalatA2Z Driving School(647-205-1299) upon becoming aware of them.
Students who have been affected by sexual violence or who need information about support services should contact Narinderpal Singh Jaswal at A2Z Driving School (647-205-1299) Subject to Section 4 below, to the extent it is possible, A2Z Driving School will attempt to keep all personal information of persons involved in the investigation confidential except in those circumstances where it believes an individual is at imminent risk of self-harm, or of harming another, or there are reasonable grounds to believe that others on its campus or the broader community are at risk. This will be done by: ensuring that all complaints/reports and information gathered as a result of the complaint/reports will be only available to those who need to know for purposes of investigation, implementing safety measures and other circumstances that arise from any given case; and ensuring that the documentation is kept in a separate file from that of the Complainant / Student or the Respondent.
A2Z  Driving School recognizes the right of the Complainant not to report an incident of or make a complaint about sexual violence or not request an investigation and not to participate in any investigation that may occur.
Notwithstanding (e) above, in certain circumstances, A2Z Driving School may be required by law or its internal policies to initiate an internal investigation and/or inform police without the complainant’s consent if it believes the safety of members of its campus or the broader community is at risk. In all cases, including (e &f) above and (h) below, A2Z Driving School will appropriately accommodate the needs of its students who are affected by sexual violence. Students seeking accommodation should contact Narinderpal Singh Jaswal at 647-205-1299. In this regard, A2Z Driving School will assist students who have experienced sexual violence in obtaining counseling and medical care, and provide them with information about sexual violence supports and services available in the community as set out in Appendix 1 attached hereto. Students are not required to file a formal complaint in order to access supports and services.

Investigating Reports of Sexual Violence
Under this Sexual Violence Policy, any student of A2Z Driving School may file a report of an incident or a complaint to Narinderpal Singh Jaswal in writing. Upon receipt of a report of an incident or a complaint of alleged sexual violence being made, Narinderpal Singh Jaswal will respond promptly and determine whether an investigation should proceed and if the Complainant wishes to participate in an investigation; determine who should conduct the investigation having regard to the seriousness of the allegation and the parties involved; determine whether the incident should be referred immediately to the police; In such cases or where civil proceedings are commenced in respect of allegations of sexual violence, A2Z Driving School may conduct its own independent investigation and make its own determination in accordance with its own policies and procedures; and determine what interim measures ought to be put in place pending the investigation process such as removal of the Respondent or seeking alternate methods of providing necessary course studies.

Once an investigation is initiated, the following will occur:
the Complainant and the Respondent will be advised that they may ask another person to be present throughout the investigation; interviewing the Complainant to ensure a complete understanding of the allegation and gathering additional information that may not have been included in the written complaint such as 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; informing and interviewing the Respondent of the complaint, providing details of the allegations and giving the Respondent an opportunity to respond to those allegations and to provide any witnesses the Respondent feels are essential to the investigation; interviewing any person involved or who has, or may have, knowledge of the incident and any identified witnesses; providing reasonable updates to the Complainant and the Respondent about the status of the investigation; and following the investigation, Narinderpal Singh Jaswal will Review all of the evidence collected during the investigation; Determine whether sexual violence occurred; and if so determine what disciplinary action, if any, should be taken as set out in Section 5 below. Disciplinary Measures If it is determined by A2Z Driving School that the Respondent did engage in sexual violence, immediate disciplinary or corrective action will be taken. This may include: Disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment of instructors or staff; or expulsion of a student and/or the placement of certain restrictions on the Respondent’s ability to access certain premises or facilities and/or any other actions that maybe appropriate in the circumstances.

Individuals who violate this Sexual Violence Policy are subject to disciplinary and /or corrective action up to and including termination of employment of instructors or staff or expulsion of a student.
