Who We Are

The Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton (SACE) is a non-profit organization that has been serving Edmonton since 1975. 

Edmonton is located on Treaty 6 Territory and Métis Region 4 Territory, a traditional home and gathering place for many Indigenous Peoples, including  nehîyawak (Cree), Niitsitapi (Blackfoot), Dene, Nakota Sioux, Métis, Saulteaux/Ojibway/Anishinaabe, Iroquois, and many others who were displaced or not included during the treaty agreement. It is also the ancestral space of the Papaschase Cree. To learn more:

SACE provides support and services for those impacted by sexual violence, while building community capacity to prevent violence, and supportively responding to those who have been impacted by this crime. We do this through a number of services, all of which are provided at no fee:


Our team creates interactive and tailored opportunities for youth, adults, and professionals to learn about a variety of topics related to sexual violence and sexual violence prevention. No matter the topic or audience, you can be sure that our content will be research-supported, inclusive, and provided from a non-victim blaming perspective.  

Police and Court 

This service seeks to empower and support people who have experienced sexual violence to navigate police and court processes. Services include providing information on the reporting process and/or the court system, assistance with Victims of Crime forms, court accompaniment, and emotional support every step of the way.

Support and 
Information Line

This is a phone line that people can call if they have been impacted by sexual violence. The line is available every day of the year from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., and is run by a group of dedicated volunteers who have completed over 70 hours of training. This is not a counselling line, but a supportive listening line. It is a safe and non-judgmental space for people to talk through an experience, explore feelings, or get information on sexual violence, consent, and community resources.

Youth and Adult Counselling

SACE offers short-term, professional group and individual counselling to children, youth, and adults who have experienced sexual violence. Our counsellors take a client-centered, empowerment approach— meaning that we treat each client as the expert of their life. Our clients are empowered to guide the counselling process and can decide how and when they are going to heal. Like all services at SACE, our counselling services are offered at no fee.
