Domestic Violence, Part 1

This webinar will help you learn more about living in Canada and will help you and your family settle in Ontario. This webinar on Domestic Violence consists of two parts: part 1 talks about types of domestic violence including abuse towards women and seniors; part 2 addresses abuse and violence towards children.
Part 1 will explain how Canadian laws and society respond to domestic violence and abuse in our communities. The webinar will also cover the issues of consent, sexual abuse and assault and how they are addressed under the Ontario Human Rights Code.
At the end, there will be a list of available resources that you can seek out if you need assistance. The purpose of this information is to help you learn what is socially and legally acceptable in Canadian society and to provide you with the appropriate supports, if needed.
