Facts About Family Violence

Every 6 days a Canadian woman is killed by her intimate partner.

("Homicide in Canada, 2011," Statistics Canada, p. 11. Available: http://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/85-002-x/2012001/article/11738-eng.pdf)

Violence against women happens in all cultures and religions, in all ethnic and racial communities, at every age, and in every income group.

Women's Voices

"Being able to get into WINGS changed my life and my son’s life too. We are safe from my ex-spouse. I have learned to heal and grow. I have learned to let go of things I can’t change. I have learned to forgive myself and my ex. I have grown stronger. WINGS is a life saver for me.

The counsellors are great and very helpful. I look forward to going to group; to know you are not alone and that other women have been in similar situations. My son loves daycare; all the other kids to play with and develop friendships.

The province really needs programs like this and more of them. The shelters are full. It is easy to say, not my problem - until it happens to you or someone you know, like your Mom, Aunt, Niece, Sister, or Friend. It is devastating to families and we all need help up."
