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