First Step Towards Safety

First Step Towards Safety

Did you know? Helplines are often the first point of contact for thousands of women in Canada each year who experience intimate partner violence. Operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, compassionately trained staff provide counseling, emotional support, information, referrals and even help identify an abusive situation. While emergency women shelters are essential in our communities, it’s important to note that not all women experiencing abuse will go to a shelter.

That’s just one of the reasons why helplines are so vital and why the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is marking its 25th anniversary with a contribution to these essential services. 

See below for a list of provincial and territorial helplines for women experiencing intimate partner violence. If you are a friend or family member of someone you think may be experiencing abuse, you are welcome to reach out to a helpline as well to learn more about how best to support your loved one.
