The Centre for Research and Education on Violence Against Women & Children webpage is a centralized hub for resources related to Gender-Based Violence (GBV) and the COVID-19 pandemic. It shares the work of organizations across Canada, as well as key international research.
Recommended public health measures to stop the spread of COVID-19 such as social/physical distancing and the closure of non-essential services may increase exposure to violence (e.g. intimate partner violence, sexual violence, child maltreatment), in addition to changing the landscape of support-seeking.
The hope of this hub of resources will contribute to the ongoing work of preventing and responding to GBV during the pandemic by sharing high-quality information and innovative strategies to support those experiencing or at risk of experiencing GBV.
