The health risks and isolation of the COVID-19 pandemic have put those affected by violence at even greater risk. We have worked with family violence organizations across Canada to develop a fact sheet on COVID-19 related controlling behaviours. Violence can take many forms; it’s important to be able to recognize the signs of violence and abuse. Access the complete fact sheet here: MAWS_LN-COVID-19-Related-Controlling-Behaviours-PDF-1.
If you or someone you know is feeling unsafe or seeking domestic violence support services, the Domestic Violence Helpline is available 24/7: 1-877-977-0007.
