Welcome to Canadian Domestic Homicide Prevention Initiative
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
Advice from Survivors
Two new resources have been developed in partnership with the Learning Network based on research conducted by the CDHPIVP project with survivors of domestic violence.
rs across Canada shared their knowledge in interviews conducted as part of the CDHPIVP. CDHPIVP researchers interviewed women who had experienced IPV to learn how they managed the abuse and violence in their relationships, how they sought safety, and what advice they would give to others experiencing violence. The survivors were no longer in an abusive relationship, felt they were safe when they participated in the interview, and were no longer involved in any criminal proceedings.
Preventing domestic homicide: From research and lived experiences to practice
This online conference (May 11-14, 2021) focussed on the lessons learned of the Canadian Domestic Homicide Prevention Initiative with Vulnerable Populations — a research project supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. The presentations and recordings are available at 2021 Conference | Canadian Domestic Homicide Prevention Initiative (cdhpi.ca)
Prévenir les homicides familiaux : de la recherche et des expériences vécues à la pratique

One is too many: 10 Years Of Domestic Homicides In Canada
This study documents the number of domestic homicides in Canada between 2010 and 2019 based on court and media reports. This research was conducted as part of a multi-year, SSHRC-funded project entitled The Canadian Domestic Homicide Prevention Initiative with Vulnerable Populations (CDHPIVP; 2015-2021). The project involves academic and community partners across Canada who are focused on promoting collaborative, multi-sectoral research to identify unique individual, community and societal level risk factors that may increase exposure to domestic violence and domestic homicide for specific populations.
One is too many: Trends and Patterns in Domestic Homicides in Canada 2010-2015
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.
