Are you seeking support to deal with abuse or violence?

If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, call 911 or your local police. To find information on shelters and support services in your province or territory, consult this resource list.

Please note: the Canadian Women’s Foundation does not provide counselling or services to individuals. We fund and support organizations that help women and girls, but we do not provide services directly. Learn more about our work.
