New Funding for Programs to Prevent and Address Gender-Based Violence
The provincial government is investing an additional $18.7 million this year to prevent and address violence against women and girls. This funding is part of Ontario’s $162 million agreement with the federal government through the National Action Plan to End Gender-Based Violence.
This announcement responds to AMO’s advocacy on gender-based violence by strengthening critical services and supports, recognizing the importance of community-specific approaches, and committing to important reforms in the justice system. AMO looks forward to continuing our work with the province and other partners to address gender-based violence in Ontario.
