People Experiencing Marginalization and the Effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic Response on Violence Against Women Services:
The MARCO-VAW study
How did VAW services across the Greater Toronto Area adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic? What contextual factors influenced these adaptations? How well have VAW services met the needs of survivors during the pandemic? What can we learn to strengthen VAW practice and policy?
The Interprovincial Violence Against Women (IPV) Project
We aim to identify and mobilize knowledge around best practices for preventing and responding to violence against women, during and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic, that account for differences in jurisdictions and population groups across Canadian provinces. This study includes partners across Ontario, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick.
