National Aboriginal Circle Against Family Violence/Cercle National des Autochtones Contre La Violence Familiale
Kahnawake, Quebec

The National Aboriginal Circle Against Family Violence, in partnership with Women’s Shelters Canada, is undertaking a comparative study on three to four different areas of the country to address the level of disparity in funding between federally-funded, on-reserve women’s shelters and provincially-funded, off-reserve women’s shelters. In order to advocate for systemic change, there is a strong need for empirical evidence. The research obtained will be used as a lobbying tool with various levels of government in order to close the funding gap, if an inequity truly does exist.
