Welcome From the Conference Team!


To say that we're excited about hosting the Canadian Domestic Violence Conference 6 in Halifax is an understatement.  We're passionate about the grassroots work that is happening across the country.  We recognize that the work being done in Canadian communities is providing leadership in the field internationally.

Our best hope for the conference is that attendees will find the experience a memorable one, and that you'll leave with your passion stoked to continue to create innovative ways of responding to intimate partner violence in your communities.

In the weeks ahead, we'll be posting regular updates on the conference in this space - so, please check back here regularly.  And, of course, if you have any questions about the conference or about travel to Halifax, please feel free to contact us.
