Crisis support resources

If you or someone you know is affected by gender-based violence, you can find support lines in your region:

Women and Gender Equality Canada's Gender-Based Violence Knowledge Centre maintains a searchable database of information and resources on gender-based violence:

In order to co-develop an effective, durable and accountable national action plan, we need to ensure that everyone contributing has access to the advice of those with expertise and lived experience, as well as proven and promising practices.

We endeavour to provide an evolving digital library of resources related to keeping Indigenous women, girls, Two Spirit and LGBTQQIA+ people safe and the themes and issues identified in the national inquiry's final report.

You can sort by organization, title of the resource, region or theme. You can also search by keyword.

More resources will be added as the collaborative work with partners including provinces, territories, national Indigenous organizations, Indigenous organizations and women's organizations towards a national action plan continues. If you know of a resource or initiative that could be highlighted on this page, send an email to aadnc.ffada-mmiwg.aandc@canada.ca.
