Violence against Women Prevention Initiative

The AMI partnered with the Nova Scotia Advisory Council on the Status of Women through the Violence Protection research collaboration.

The violence against women prevention initiative includes the following goals:

  • Create an inter-sectoral, sustainable Nova Scotian network between government, academics, and community NGOs to pursue policy development, services, and research in the area of violence prevention.
  • Build an environment scan of current supports, programs, and evidence in NS related to violence prevention.
  • Develop research capacity for Nova Scotia to be able to respond meaningfully to the anticipated Federal framework to end gender-based violence.
