Preventing domestic homicide: From research and lived experiences to practice. Online Conference. May 11-14, 2021.
The conference focal point was sharing knowledge resulted from the six-year, a collaborative, cross-sector, multi-disciplinary, national study. The “Canadian Domestic Homicide Prevention Initiative with Vulnerable Populations”, Indigenous, Immigrants and Refugees, Rural, Remote and Northern, and children exposed to domestic violence. The research project was funded by the Social Sciences Humanities Research Council of Canada. The presenters included project researchers and community partners. While, the voices of survivours played an important factor throughout the conference. The Muslim Resource Centre for Social Support and Integration (MRCSSI) was a partner and collaborator throughout the project and will further build on the lessons learned from this important project to further address domestic violence within immigrant and refugee communities within a culturally integrative response.
