Domestic & Sexual Violence

The heart of our work


1 in 3 women will experience a form of sexual violence in their lifetime.


Half of Canadian women have suffered at least one act of physical or sexual violence since the age of 16.


Over a quarter of women have been assaulted by a spouse.


Shelter Services at the YWCA provide direct and comprehensive support to survivors of domestic or sexual violence. That means one-on-one help for survivors and work to create community solutions that prevent domestic & sexual violence and promote healthy relationships.
