As we learn more about the horrific and tragic events that unfolded in Nova Scotia earlier this week, the role that gender-based violence played in this devastating situation cannot be ignored. Violence against women is prevalent across our country, and it is disheartening that it takes a tragedy of this magnitude to force the all-too common occurrence of domestic violence into the forefront of our minds.

We mourn, in quiet and somber solidarity, with the countless families affected by these events—as hard as they are for us, and the rest of Canada, to comprehend.

Gender-based violence is not a singular issue, and its effects on women and children in Canada continue to drive the work that we do at Family Transition Place. We remain steadfastly committed to supporting anyone who needs us at ANY TIME. You are not alone. There is 24/7 support available. Please reach out.
