Women’s Shelters Canada collaborates with a number of partners and stakeholders. We strongly believe that coordinated efforts are required to address the complexity and pervasiveness of violence against women in Canada and around the world.

Shelters: More than a Refuge from Violence

Shelters and transition houses are much more than refuges from violence – they are places where women rebuild their lives.

Each year, WSC publishes Shelter Voices from data collected from shelters across the country, highlighting the voices behind the numbers.
