In April 2019, with funding from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), four organizations from the anti-violence and settlement sectors, partnered to begin collaborative work on developing a national strategy to address GBV for newcomers and refugees. Collaborative partners include OCASI (Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants), The Canadian Immigrant Settlement Sector Alliance – Alliance canadienne du secteur de l’établissement des immigrants (CISSA-ACSEI), Ending Violence Association of Canada, and the YMCA of Greater Halifax/Dartmouth.
With input from the settlement and anti-violence sectors, and through funding from Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), this project works to build the capacity of settlement and anti-violence sectors to co-develop a shared base of knowledge and to better support newcomers and refugees through a coordinated, comprehensive approach.
They are conducting a short survey about gender-based violence and want to learn from service providers (like you!) about providing accurate, clear, and consistent information and resources for newcomers, immigrants, and refugees about GBV across Canada. Please share your promising practices by completing this survey.
Complete the survey by Feb 10, 2022.
