We Believe You

There is help and support on PEI. Healing can start now.




PEI Rape and Sexual Assault Centre

We are a non-profit, government funded organization that provides services to individuals of all genders residing in PEI who have experienced recent or historic sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse. We offer counselling support and innovative healing programs from our many locations across the island including Charlottetown, Summerside, Alberton.

Sexual assault is any unwanted act of a sexual nature imposed on another person without their consent.

Groups who are marginalized by society – including young women, transgender and gender non-conforming people, Indigenous people, immigrants and refugees, sex workers, people living with disabilities, seniors, and people living in poverty – are at increased risk of sexual violence.

PEIRSAC supports and advocates for survivors regardless of gender, sexuality, race, background, or belief. Our aim is to support healing both at the individual and community level, and to work towards spaces where all residents of PEI are safe from sexual violence. To achieve this we work collaboratively with, and in ways that empower, individuals and organizations.

Our Primary Services Include:

  • Individual and group therapy and counselling for youth (12+) and adults of all genders

  • Psychoeducational information and community programming

  • Referrals to other community support programs​​

We do not operate a support line outside of office hours.

Prince Edward Island is a community driven province, and PEIRSAC believes that by introducing the “Island Shot”, it calls on all Islanders that work within and frequent establishments that serve alcohol to be mindful of one another, and to create environments that feel safer, and more guided by community care.
