The British Columbia Society for Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse (BCSMSSA) is a non-profit society established to provide therapeutic services for males who have been sexually abused at some time in their lives. As specifically outlined in our constitution, our purposes are to:

  • Provide treatment and support services to male survivors of sexual abuse and support significant-others and relatives of the survivors.
  • Acquire and develop educational material concerning sexual abuse of males.
  • Gather statistics for dissemination to professionals and the community at large.
  • Assist in establishing within British Columbia new agencies dealing with male survivors of sexual abuse by providing training opportunities, whenever possible, to interested personnel.
  • Ensure clear, consistent communication in dealing with other involved agencies or professionals in order to guarantee comprehensive case management.
  • Consult with community and government groups in the areas of prevention, treatment, therapy, and other matters relating to sexual abuse of males.
