#CalgaryGetsConsent is a campaign initiated in 2017 by the Centre for Sexuality (formerly Calgary Sexual Health Centre) with the intention of creating a culture of consent. The overall goal of #CalgaryGetsConsent is to raise awareness and provide education about consent by initiating a community-wide conversation, and to provide community members with tools to discuss consent. Recognising that consent is important at all ages, from birth into old age, this campaign aims to normalise consent in all aspects of our lives.

#CalgaryGetsConsent includes several initiatives:

  • free community training opportunities about consent and bystander interventions
  • a media campaign across multiple platforms to start the conversation about consent
  • working with community partners on local events
