We represent a strong, unified voice on the issue of violence against women on the national stage. Through collaboration, knowledge exchange and adoption of innovative practices, we advance the co-ordination and implementation of high quality services for women and children accessing shelters.
This special issue of Shelter Voices was designed to contribute to our pan-Canadian Feminist Brain Drain study, focusing on labour issues and the impact they have on staff, organizations as a whole, and service delivery.
Check out our new national awareness campaign,
which illustrates how VAW shelters and transition houses
are “More Than” shelter.
Canada's National Action Plan needs to be bold, ambitious, and intersectional.
Our mission is to work as a unified voice for systemic change to end violence against women, while providing leadership for collaboration and knowledge exchange among shelters and transition houses across the country. Shelters support women and children fleeing violence. We support the shelters.
