BC Bad Date and Aggressor Reporting Project Coordinator
BCDAR Working Group
This new, three-year project, funded by the Law Foundation of BC and a BC-based family foundation, will
create and implement a provincial Bad Date and Aggressor Reporting (BDAR) system in BC, which will
be the first geographically-linked BDAR system in Canada. The project involves engaging sex workers
and stakeholders from across BC in increasing violence prevention and response work, holding provincewide community consultations on the pervasiveness and extent of violence against sex workers, and
conducting research to inform the legal education and law reform necessary to ensure uptake, usage
and response to both the BDAR system and interlinked justice and support systems. The creation of the
provincial BDAR system will be a catalyst for systemic change among law enforcement, those engaged
in harm reduction and gender-based violence prevention and response work, politicians, policymakers
and funders. This project and the networks it develops will lay the groundwork for a more coherent legal,
policy and service approach to violence against sex workers across BC.
Five sex work support and service organizations in BC have come together as a working group to secure
the funding for this project: PACE Society, Peers Victoria, Living in Community, SWAN Vancouver, and
WISH Drop-In Centre Society. This contract position will be administered through WISH, but the Project
Coordinator will report to the working group organizations as a whole.
