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

"I am a mom living in WINGS at the moment with my beautiful kids. I came to WINGS because I was in another shelter, which was only a 21 day stay. They suggested I go to WINGS because they provide support and have programs that help with domestic abuse.

I came to Canada as an immigrant and met my spouse here. I was physically and mentally abused by my spouse. He isolated me from society. I wasn’t allowed to go to work or to school. I wasn’t even allowed to go grocery shopping or to visit family or friends.

WINGS changed that for me. They helped me to grow and showed me that I have the right to be treated as a human being. My counsellor is the best; she helps me to deal with my situation. Now I can speak; I am independent. I can drive a car and I am looking forward to going to school and work. Thanks to WINGS I can get financially stable and they have made me stronger and a more positive person. This place is a home to me and my children and I wish I could stay here forever."
