A Blueprint for Canada's National Action Plan on Violence Against Women and Girls
—Canadian Labour Congress
Prevention measures are oriented around collaborative education initiatives targeting all genders focused on education and training on healthy-relationships, bystander interventions, cyber violence, and human rights.
Public service responses concern accessibility barriers to providing women with long- and short-term trauma-informed support services, free legal aid for abuse survivors, and family justice centres.
Legal and justice responses ensure that all authoritative individuals involved in the Canadian justice system are trained in intersectional gender-based analysis of family and sexual violence, and modify child custody decision procedures.
Social policy responses must create a national housing strategy that recognizes the unique circumstances of Indigenous and non-Indigenous women and children experiencing homelessness, and to provide protections for immigrants or migrant workers at risk of exploitation by abusive sponsors or employers.
