Women’s shelters and transition houses are open during the COVID-19 pandemic to protect women and children fleeing violence. If you or someone you know needs help or wants to speak to a shelter worker, you can find your closest women’s shelter and their crisis line on www.sheltersafe.ca.

Remember that you can get advice and safety planning through their crisis line without moving into the shelter.
