This two-hour presentation is geared towards agencies and organizations that service victims of partner violence or work with folks who are LGBTQ2S.


From Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity:

The intimate Partner Violence (IPV) Prevention Program at the Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual
Diversity aims to increase capacity of LGBTQ2S+ agencies by providing them with tools, information on
services, and training to support LGBTQ2S+ victims of domestic physical assault, sexual assault and
emotional abuse and to increase their access to the criminal justice system. We work with LGBTQ2S+
agencies, law enforcement, and non-LGBTQ2S+ organizations to create best practices to address the
gaps in victim services and increase access to justice for LGBTQ2S+ people. The IPV Prevention
program delivers comprehensive training to LGBTQ2S+ agencies, organizations that service victims of
partner violence, and criminal justice system players across the country on how to better support
LGBTQ2S+ victims of crime.

We will work with any and all service providers across Canada who may come into contact with
LGBTQ2S+ victims of intimate partner violence, including (but not limited to): sexual assault centres,
community resource/health centres, legal services, victim services, police units, sexual health centres,
hospitals/clinics, pride centres, and university/college programs.
