Towards a Violence-Free Canada: Report from federal Standing Committee on the Status of Women

A must-read for any community service organization (or any Canadian, for that matter), this report from the Standing Committee on the Status of Women was tabled June 17 in Ottawa.

The report is packed with important statistics for understanding the issues and impact of intimate partner violence. Board Voice has been advocating for a year now on the intersection of intimate partner violence and brain injury, and we are heartened to see the recommendation in this report to increase research in this critically important but virtually invisible area.
