ABOUT US

Survivor Perspectives Consulting Group is a volunteer service provider of professionally coordinated Military Sexual Trauma (MST) Survivor Perspectives, Training, and Solutions in Canada.

 

As the decades-long crisis of Sexual Misconduct in the Canadian Armed Forces becomes more and more prominent, we (a small group of Canadian Military Sexual Trauma Survivors) have decided to build an organization that would be a ‘one-stop-shop’ for the Canadian Military Sexual Trauma Survivors’ perspective and guidance.

 

There is an obvious gap at the proverbial ‘executive table’ and we want to fill that gap by providing a professionally coordinated Canadian Military Sexual Trauma Survivor perspective and survivor-borne education solutions which potential clients such as the Canadian Armed Forces,  Veteran Affairs Canada and other stakeholders could access easily, without worry of re-traumatizing.

 

We are a strong community.

We all wish we could contribute to making the

Canadian Armed Forces better.

But we need a professionally coordinated way to do so.

 

Survivor Perspectives Consulting Group is offering a proven, survivor-borne training solution to the Canadian Armed Forces and Veteran Affairs Canada leadership, with a view to providing a unique perspective on what Survivor Perspectives Consulting Group Survivors, both serving and retired, need in this time of crisis.

WHO IS AN MST SURVIVOR?

MST Diagram-01-01.jpg

Who is a “Canadian MST Survivor”?

 

Military Sexual Trauma, or MST, refers to experiences of sexual assault or repeated, threatening sexual harassment that a Veteran or Active Service Member experienced during his or her military service. It also refers to civilians who were victims of sexual assault at the hands of a Canadian Armed Forces member. A Canadian Military Sexual Trauma Survivor is a person who experienced Sexual Trauma within one of the following scenarios:

 

Scenario 1 - A member of the Canadian Armed Forces who suffered Sexual Trauma at the hands of another person (not necessarily another member of the Canadian Armed Forces, but could be) at any location.

 

Scenario 2 - A member of the public (not necessarily a Department of National Defence employee, but could be, also family members, spouses or others) who experienced Sexual Trauma at the hands of a member of the Canadian Armed Forces at any location.
