About Us
The Prince Edward Island Rape and Sexual Assault Centre is a  non-profit, government funded organization that provides services to adult (women and men) and youth (over age 16) survivors of recent or historic sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse  across Prince Edward Island. Our services include individual therapy, support and information. We also manage a group program for male survivors.  

The goal of the PEI Rape and Sexual Assault Centre (PEIRSAC) is to support and advocate for survivors of sexual assault and abuse in their healing and to ensure that all residents of PEI are safe from sexual violence. To achieve this, we work collaboratively with, and in ways that empower, individuals and organizations.
