Addressing Domestic Violence in the Workplace Through Collaboration Dialogue Series


View Flyer in EN | FR

This event is the first of a Regional Dialogue Series that will create space for labour, federally regulated employers, shelters, and marginalized communities to discuss and learn about innovative approaches to addressing domestic violence in the workplace. It is an opportunity to share information about working collaboratively across sectors, geographies and types of organizations to support those affected and to mitigate impacts on workplaces.

Who Should Attend?

  • Management representatives from federally regulated workplaces
  • Union leaders and representatives from federally regulated workplaces
  • Shelter workers and domestic violence risk assessment experts
  • Leaders and representatives of marginalized communities

Each Regional Dialogue will focus on the following objectives:


  • To increase collective awareness of the resources (ie: supports, tools, strategies and threat assessors) available in each specific region by service organizations that can support employers and unions in addressing domestic violence.
  • To strengthen relationships between community-based domestic violence services and federal workplaces and identify strategies for continued relationship-building.
  • To build collective awareness and ability to support marginalized workers and those who experience additional barriers in accessing supports.
  • To expand our knowledge in co-developing and participating in collaborative service delivery models across sectors, geographies, and types of organizations
