cover factsheetsa caregivers june2019As part of our Access to Justice project, lead researcher Myrna Dawson and research assistant Amy Peirone have created a fact sheet for caregivers, service providers, friends, and families to support them in identifying general characteristics of abuse, red flags for sexual abuse, and to know how to proceed next. 
This factsheet addresses:

  • What is sexual abuse?
  • What are the red flags?
  • Who is at risk?
  • Who are the perpetrators?
  • What to do if you become aware of sexual abuse occurring to an older adult in your family and or in your care.

cfojafactsheet cover''This fact sheet provides a snapshot of the continuing efforts of the Canadian Femicide Observatory for Justice and Accountability (CFOJA) to collect and disseminate knowledge on femicide in Canada.
It is based on available information from media reports. Given these are recent incidents and investigations are ongoing, these are preliminary findings only. Identifying whether these killings are ‘femicide’ – women killed because they are women – is an ongoing process and those incidents that involve gender-based motives/indicators will be reported on when further information becomes available.

cfoja infographic final en"The recent call by the United Nations for countries to create femicide observatories is a significant and urgent signal. Despite research done to date, and advances made, this issue remains a very serious and critical issue for women and girls in Canada and around the world.

''The CFOJA was established to respond to this call. Its work is supported and strengthened by collaborations among researchers and an advisory panel of experts from across the country. This ensures that the work is both grounded in accurate statistical data and accompanied by a reliable and accessible presentation of information in a way that best reflects the realities of the women and girls who are killed by violence in Canada.      

This infographic summarizes some key findings from the CFOJA 2018 report. The report contains critical information that builds on the earlier and ongoing work on femicide in Canada and internationally by highlighting current and emerging trends and issues that require further investigation and monitoring in the coming years.
