Circles of Support and Accountability (CoSA) in Canada is facing a funding crisis. Funding from the federal government is about to run out…and there’s too much at stake to let that happen!

CoSA addresses a critical issue affecting all our communities – the traumatic impact of sexual offences on vulnerable people – CoSA offers an effective prevention strategy.  If funding for CoSA Canada (the national association that distributes funds to all CoSA sites) from the federal government is not secured beyond March 2022, 25% of the 15 CoSA sites across Canada risk closure and the remaining sites will be forced to dramatically reduce capacity.  This means approximately 100 participants in the program (annually) will no longer receive our services. CoSA’s sustainability – and indeed, community safety – are on the line.

We would be grateful if you  email your local MP today to ask that CoSA sites in your community and across Canada secure ongoing sustainable funding of $2.5 million/annually.  Please attach (and reference) this CoSA letter to MPs, sent to all MPs by CoSA Canada in December. E-mail list for MPs and Senators (insert your postal code to find your local MP);  snail mail addresses for MPs.

Thank you for your support and help with this urgent matter!

You can help to keep your community safe. Your gift can support a program that works, dramatically reducing sexual re-offenses. 

With your help, we can continue our vital work at CoSA Ottawa, with the goal of ensuring there are No More Victims.
