The solutions to end sex trafficking of girls and women are intrinsically linked to all of our key priorities: helping women transition out of poverty; ending violence against women; building strong, resilient girls; and public education and advocacy.

Why Violence against Women is a Concern for All
 
Each year 40,000 arrests result from domestic violence - that’s about 12% of all violent crimes in Canada. While all violence is unacceptable, over 83% of police-reported domestic assaults are against women. And sadly, every six days in Canada a woman is murdered by her intimate partner.

Message from Mina Mawani, President and CEO:
 
As the new CEO of the Canadian Women's Foundation, I'm often asked "What makes your organization different?"  I love answering this question, because we are truly unique. After all, when you look at social and economic problems through a woman's eyes, you can't help but see things differently.
