Seeking Support?

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.

Below are links to shelters, other services, and information that may be helpful to you. Services may vary from region to region.

COVID-19 Pandemic Update: The social isolation measures necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic are making it more difficult for those who are at risk of abuse or violence to safely reach out for help. Learn more about “Signal for Help”, a simple one-handed sign someone can use on a video call to let others know that they want others to check in with them.

If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, call 911 or your local emergency services (police, fire, ambulance).
