Perhaps that thought has run through your mind when you have worried that someone close to you might be experiencing abuse.

But why is it not your business?

That’s the focus of our new month-long campaign challenging everyone to take simple actions that could have a big impact in the life of someone experiencing abuse.

The campaign, launched by the City of Toronto in partnership with Family Service Toronto, is designed to raise awareness about intimate partner violence – one of the most common forms of gender-based violence including physical, sexual, and emotional abuse and controlling behaviours by an intimate partner(s).

One in three Canadian women have experienced abuse at some point in their life. Addressing intimate partner violence is everyone’s responsibility.
