About the Family Violence Initiative

The Department of Justice Canada is a partner in the federal Family Violence Initiative. Its role is to strengthen the criminal justice system response to family violence by working together with provincial and territorial counterparts and its partners in other sectors and disciplines. This includes ensuring that the Criminal Code of Canada effectively addresses family violence. It also includes working in partnership with provincial and territorial justice and law enforcement officials, as well as federal partners, to improve the effectiveness of the criminal justice system through: legislative and policy review and reform; public and professional education; research and support for programs and services.
