National and Provincial Intiatives Map

Canadian Domestic Homicide Prevention Initiative

Domestic homicides account for 1 in 5 murders in Canada. Each province and territory is involved in learning from these deaths through domestic violence death review committees, coroners' investigations, inquests, inquiries or research studies. 

The Canadian Domestic Homicide Prevention Initiative (CDHPI) is a knowledge hub for this information to help inform promising practices in homicide prevention. In particular, the CDHPI is focused on identifying emerging risk assessment, management, and safety planning strategies. The CDHPI has produced a interactive map to highlight this work in each jurisdiction.

The Canadian Domestic Homicide Prevention Initiative with Vulnerable Populations (CDHPIVP) is a five-year SSHRC partnership grant (2015-2020) that explores the unique needs of Indigenous, immigrant and refugee, rural, remote, and northern communities, and children exposed to domestic violence.

 


IN THE SPOTLIGHT

Brief 10 cover pageBrief 10: Domestic Violence Safety Planning, Risk Assessment and Management: Perspectives From Service Providers in Nova Scotia
The current study is part of the Canadian Domestic Homicide Prevention Initiative with Vulnerable Populations (CDHPIVP). The CDHPIVP is an ongoing, collaborative initiative seeking to provide a comprehensive overview of the protocols, strategies, and barriers in relation to Risk Assessment, Risk Management, and Safety Planning in high-risk cases. The CDHPIVP aims to provide an in-depth look at risk factors specific to indigenous populations, immigrants and refugees, rural, remote and northern populations, and children exposed to domestic violence. This brief report analyzed a subset of interviews from the CDHPIVP’s larger ongoing project. This study examined interviews with key informants working in Nova Scotia in various sectors related to domestic violence. The goal of the current brief was a comprehensive examination of the training, protocols, and strategies available to and used by service workers in Nova Scotia.

This report documents the number of domestic homicides in Canada between 2010 and 2015 based on court and media reports and focuses on four vulnerable populations (Indigenous; rural, remote and northern; immigrant and refugee; children killed in the context of domestic violence) that appear to be at greater risk  of domestic homicide due to historical oppression and/or lack of resources because of isolation through factors such as geography, language, culture, age and poverty.
