Finding community resources for workplace domestic violence

Communities in Ontario vary in population size and geographic location. Small communities and rural and remote communities are not able to sustain the same level of services as large urban centres. This protocol identifies many community resources that may be available to people who experiencing domestic violence, their neighbours, friends and families. It is intended to help you begin exploring what is available in your own community. It also provides information and referral sources that you can access through the telephone or the internet.

You will find suggestions on how to access:

  • Workplace domestic violence resources
  • Emergency response services
  • Safety and security resources to protect the person at risk, their children, and others (including co-workers)
