Circles of Support and Accountability (CoSA) Ottawa is at a precarious stage in our history. Now in our 20th year of operations in Ottawa, our sustainability is in jeopardy, with our funding from the federal government having concluded March 2022…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 a proven, 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 soon, 14 CoSA sites across Canada risk closure or dramatically reducing capacity. This means approximately 100 participants in the program (annually) will no longer receive our services, putting community safety on the line.
We invite you to email your local MP to ask that CoSA sites in your community and across Canada secure ongoing sustainable funding. Please attach (and reference) this CoSA letter to MPs that was sent to all MPs by CoSA Canada in December 2021. 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!
