Violence in Family Relationships

Anyone can be a victim of family violence, regardless of their age, race, economic status, religion, sexual orientation, or education. While men can be victims of family violence, women represent the overwhelming majority of victims. It is consistently identified as one of the most common forms of violence against women in Canada. 

Many of our programs offer support to women and children who have experienced gender based violence. Violence and abuse can take on many forms and affect individuals, couples, and families differently. Here are some statistics on gender based violence:

  • Half of all women in Canada have experienced at least one incident of physical or sexual violence since the age of 16
  • 61% of all Canadians say they personally know at least one woman who has been sexually or physically assaulted
  • Young women, aged 15-34 years, have the highest risk of experiencing violence (Source)

We can also help by making referrals to other resources such as, housing, legal, or financial support.
