Family Violence Awareness Week

Standing Together to End Family Violence

October 21 - 27, 2018


The Family Violence Awareness Week is focused on creating awareness across the territory and promoting a change in attitudes and behaviours as we strive to address, reduce, and ultimately, bring an end to family violence.
