Intimate Partner Violence is Preventable

All of us have a role to play in ending intimate partner violence.

IPV is not an individual, private or family matter. IPV hurts everyone. If you know or suspect it is happening, it is important that you help. 

Get involved in community events that target the issue.




Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) can occur in all relationship types (current and former married, common-law and dating relationships, and irrespective of sexual orientation) and can affect people of all genders. While this behaviour can be directed at male victims, the vast majority of victims of IPV are women, and men tend to more commonly be the abusive partner. Many services listed for victims of IPV are for female victims unless otherwise stated.
