THE TRUTH

Domestic Violence Impacts Everyone!

Every 6 days a woman in Canada is killed by their intimate partner.

800,000 children witness family violence in Canada per year.

Employers lose $77.9 million annually

6 in every 10 criminal court cases are due to intimate partner violence

53.5% of women experience domestic violence in the workplace.


Every night, 594 mothers and their children are turned away from full shelters.

Each year Canadians collectively spend $7.4 billion to deal with the aftermath of domestic violence.

Experiencing violence leads to serious mental health problems.


Stop the Abuse

Connect to Prevent Conference

Stop the Abuse: Connect to Prevent is Canada’s leading conference, providing professionals across all sectors the newest knowledge on domestic violence prevention.

Domestic violence is defined as any form of physical, sexual, emotional or psychological abuse, including financial control, stalking and harassment. It occurs between opposite- or same-sex intimate partners, who may or may not be married, common law or living together.

It can also continue after a relationship has ended.

Our mission is to draw down the walls of ignorance, reveal the shadows of fear and to expel all shame using education, because we know that domestic violence effects all genders, ethnicities, social status and age.
