About The Body Project

The Body Project at RU is part of the multi-national Body Project Collaborative, a no-cost dissonance-based body acceptance program which allows young students to resist the societal and cultural pressures of what their bodies are expected to look like. The Body Project is associated with Student Wellbeing, Housing & Residence Life, SHARPP, and the Department of Athletics and Recreation.

EveryBody is a SomeBody

Low body confidence can be hard to identify and even harder to address, which is why Toronto Met  is on a mission to support our students to be more body confident. Body Image does not discriminate. It can be compounded by ‘minority stress’ and affects men, women, BIPOC and trans, genderqueer, and non-binary people who are of all sizes.

Does how you feel about your body prevent you from joining groups, socializing or showing up? When you hold yourself back because of the way you think you look, you miss out – and society misses out, too.

Join our Virtual Body Project Peer-to-Peer Workshops!

Register to join the *free* program, which consists of 1-hour virtual group sessions once a week for 4 weeks alongside peer-facilitators in a group of 10 students live on Zoom. Together we will break down these ideals and learn to live with body confidence.

Please note, there is a time commitment associated with this program: participants will be expected to actively participate in the four 1 hour virtual sessions and complete take home assignments. But don't worry, it's all for YOU in the end!
