Stalking and Harassment

Stalking and Harassment includes behaviours which, in some cases, are against the law and known as "criminal harassment." One of the key elements, which turn stalking behaviours into a crime, is the woman's fear for her own safety or the safety of others. Stalking and harassment can take many different forms but usually is a pattern formed by repeated actions, or a series of different incidents. Each small incident may not seem important, but all the incidents together constitute a pattern.

Examples of stalking:

  • following you in his car
  • showing up at your workplace
  • lurking around your property
  • constantly calling your phone, possibly hang-up phone calls
  • trying to get his/your friends to ask you questions or pass messages on to you
  • showing up at places that you frequent
