We used to be CCLISAR, the Canadian Centre for Legal Innovation in Sexual Assault Response.

Now we're Watershed Legal Projects. 

Still dedicated to transforming our legal systems' responses to sexualized violence.​

Welcome to Watershed.

Watershed is an independent group of experts committed to improving legal responses to sexual violence and creating more humane adjudicative processes for survivors of sexualized violence in Canada through law reform, research, policy, and education.

We are independent, non-partisan, and innovative, convening diverse experts to lead research-informed initiatives that are setting the standard for policy change.  We are committed to keeping our work and processes transparent and everything we do is held to rigorous standards.
