The Interprovincial Violence Against Women (IPV) Project


About the project

Funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and Nova Scotia Health (NSH), this mixed-methods study aims to identify and mobilize knowledge around best practices for preventing and responding to violence against women (VAW), during and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic across Canadian provinces. In developing our understanding of the state of VAW services and best practices, we seek to account for differences in regions and population groups. We will conduct surveys and interviews with VAW survivors and the staff who support them across Ontario, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick.
