Government of Canada supports partners focused on preventing gender-based violence

From the Public Health Agency of Canada – Minister of Health’s Parliamentary Secretary announces funding for projects aimed at addressing youth and teen dating violence

Gender-based violence—including violence against people based on their gender expression, gender identity, or perceived gender—is a significant cause of harm and a preventable barrier to gender equality. It is crucial that youth learn strategies to develop and maintain healthy interpersonal relationships to prevent gender-based violence and to avoid its immediate and long‑term impacts on individuals, communities and Canadian society.

Today, on behalf of the Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Minister of Health, Pam Damoff, Parliamentary Secretary for the Minister, highlighted the Government of Canada’s commitment to ending gender-based violence by announcing more than $6.4 million in funding for seven projects aimed at preventing teen and youth dating violence. The Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada, the Calgary & Area Child Advocacy Centre, the Canadian Women’s Foundation, the Coaching Association of Canada, Liard Aboriginal Women’s Society in Watson Lake, Yukon, Planned Parenthood Ottawa, and the Université du Québec à Montréal will receive funding to design and deliver unique, community-based programs that will equip young Canadians with the knowledge and skills needed to help recognize and prevent dating violence.

Parliamentary Secretary Damoff made the announcement during a keynote address to approximately 900 public health professionals at the Canadian Public Health Association’s annual conference in Ottawa. During her address, she emphasized the importance of collaboration across the health sector to address current and future Canadian public health priorities, including supporting and advancing gender equality.
