For those that have experienced sexual violence, REES is a simple and secure online reporting platform, tailored to the unique setting of post-secondary institutions.

Trauma-informed and centred on the needs of survivors that have experienced sexual violence, REES bridges anonymous incident reporting with access to critical information about reporting options, resources, and supports. REES is a customizable platform that can be adapted to any campus community.

Numbers Matter

Many post-secondary institutions are accountable to legislation that requires them to report data about sexual violence on campus. REES simplifies the data collection and analysis process through use of consistent data collection methods, comprehensive questions and multiple response answers. REES compiles aggregate anonymous data after each academic term and provides a detailed report for each campus partner. 

Whether to supplement, or replace, existing data collection methods or to begin collecting data for the first time, REES provides valuable information that can assist institutions to fulfill reporting requirements and evaluate campus response on an annual and on-going basis. 

“If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it.”

— Peter Drucker

Features

anonymous report
Anonymous Report

provides an option for survivors to have their anonymous data about campus-related sexual violence provided to the post-secondary institution without making a formal disclosure or complaint. This data can be used to inform policy, develop prevention education, enhance security on campus and meet reporting requirements.

report to police
Report to Police

is an optional feature available in partnership with local law enforcement. When a survivor chooses this reporting option, REES will transfer their contact information and Record directly to police.

Connect to My Campus

enables survivors to reach out to the designated staff contact at their post-secondary institution for information about supports and resources available to them both on and off campus. REES provides the option to send their Record and/or Narrative of the incident online directly to the staff contact.

repeat perpetrator identification
Repeat Perpetrator Identification (RPI)

is a feature of REES that helps to identify a person that has perpetrated sexual violence against multiple people. A survivor can provide specific identifying information about the perpetrator and if there is a match of identifying information provided by two survivors, the designated campus contact will be informed.

Privacy is essential to the
work we do.

REES gives control to survivors over their personal data.  When a Record is created with REES only the survivor can access it until they choose if and when to share it and with whom. 

With data stored in Canada, REES strives for compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and is developed using the principles of Privacy by Design.
