Stop the violence

At the Canadian Women’s Foundation, we want every woman to live free from violence.

We help women in Canada to move out of violence by funding emergency shelters, support programs, and effective follow-up programs. We also invest in school-based violence-prevention programs, where girls and boys learn how to stop the violence — for good.

“That first night at the shelter, I finally felt safe. For the first time in thirteen years, I actually slept through the night. It was a new beginning. A turning point.”

“We performed the ‘Many Faces of Abuse’ play at our high school. It was all quiet when we were doing it. Even a few days later, people were still like – ‘Wow, that was kind of intense.’”

“Now I know the kind of treatment I deserve. I am willing to put a lot of love and work into a relationship, but I expect to be treated with respect.”
