Education, Training and Counselling Services Provided Through Centre for Sexuality

We teach individuals how to achieve healthy relationships by learning the skills of decision-making, communication and consent.

Centre for Sexuality provides relationship and sexual health education to roughly 10,000 youths every year through our school based education programs. Our WiseGuyz program connects with over 300 young men a year and our newly designed program for girls tackles issues like self-esteem, healthy body image, gender norms and media literacy.

We train professionals, so they have the comfort and skills to integrate sexual health into their practice.

Since 2009, our Training Centre has impacted over 35,000 professionals working in social agencies, institutions and workplaces, building their capacity to support safe and inclusive environments for their clients, customers and staff.

We advocate to ensure policies that support healthy sexuality across the lifespan are integrated into organizations and adopted by governments.

Our Vision

Sexual well-being for all


We teach, we train and we advocate to support healthy bodies, healthy relationships and healthy communities.

Our Values

Social Justice / Feminism

We support and defend sexual health rights for all, and we are passionate about positive social change. We work alongside communities to elevate the voices of those who experience barriers to their achievement of healthy relationships and sexual well-being. All our work is focused on creating a more fair and just society where individuals are not disadvantaged based on their sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, race, ability, age, or family status.


We respect the physical and emotional integrity of every person and their right to make their own decisions about their body and their relationships. We support individuals with empathy and without judgment. We give people accurate information, evidence-based skills and tools to make informed choices.


We seek out individuals and organizations to partner with for the benefit of our clients and communities. We are intentionally inclusive, and our circle is ever-expanding. We leverage the power of many to achieve greater impact.


In working toward the achievement and maintenance of healthy relationships and sexual well-being for all, our role is primarily prevention and health promotion focused. To this end, we are largely upstream purveyors of change. We contribute to building the capacities of individuals to be sexually healthy across their lifetimes and we support systems and institutions to create environments that prevent negative sexual health outcomes from occurring in the first place.

Our Theory of Change

If all individuals have the opportunity to develop their capabilities, and are born, learn, live, work, play, and love in healthy supportive environments, then all individuals can assert personal autonomy and agency (choice) to achieve and maintain sexual health across their lifetimes.
