Purpose: This 36 month project will seek to address gaps in support to women who have experienced violence in the Northwest Territories. Together with its partners, the organization will assess gaps along the justice continuum, such as the availability of transitional housing, protection orders for women and options to report violence. The organization will analyze barriers for women who access multiple services concurrently when fleeing violence and will develop an action plan to support women across the NWT. Promising approaches will be piloted through partner agencies and will be shared with government policy makers, funders, and sector leaders to promote their uptake.
