Reality of a day in the life of Canada’s shelters for women survivors of abuse

March 5th / Ottawa – The Canadian Network of Women’s Shelters and Transition Houses released their first pan Canadian annual survey SHELTER VOICES on the state of emergency shelters in Canada.  The survey shows that on one day, 242 shelters in Canada helped 4,178 women and 2,490 children. The survey also shows that 116 women were pregnant and 184 had been threatened by a gun. In 2014, violence against women remains a major barrier for far too many women in achieving their full potential. Click here for the survey.
