Ontario Launches New Strategy to End Gender-Based Violence

Adapted from

Following the launch of It’s Never Okay: An Action Plan to Stop Sexual Violence and Harassment three years ago, on March 1st 2018 Ontario launched It’s Never Okay: Ontario’s Gender-Based Violence Strategy as the next big step towards ending gender-based violence in all its forms.

With a focus on both domestic violence and sexual violence, the strategy will target four key action areas:

  • Improving services and supports for survivors of and those at risk of experiencing gender-based violence
  • Intervening early and effectively to prevent the cycle of violence
  • Changing minds and challenging attitudes
  • Creating safer spaces within the justice sector

The new framework will designate up to $242-million and builds on the important work already underway through the Domestic Violence Action Plan, It’s Never Okay: An Action Plan to Stop Sexual Violence and Harassment, Walking Together: Ontario’s Long-Term Strategy to End Violence Against Indigenous Women and Ontario’s Strategy to End Human Trafficking.
