The Canadian Domestic Homicide Prevention Initiative (CDHPI) is dedicated to bringing researchers and practitioners together to share knowledge that can inform promising practices in the prevention of domestic homicide.
The CDHPI website serves as an information depository and knowledge mobilization site for our current projects, risk assessment, risk management, and safety planning resources, and resources from Domestic Violence Death Review Committees across Canada and internationally. Considering the recentness of the development of death review committees in Canada, the CDHPI serves as a foundation to build a national partnership between DVDRCs and enhance communication, collaboration, and information sharing at a national level.
The CDHPI website includes:
- reports, educational materials, and key findings developed through research, inquests, and committee reviews;
- information on how to implement a death review committee in your own community;
- emerging risk assessment, risk management, and safety planning strategies;
- current learning opportunities (e.g., conferences, training).
The CDHPI was developed in partnership with the Centre for Research & Education on Violence Against Women & Children at Western University and the Centre of Study of Social and Legal Responses to Violence at the University of Guelph. Funding for the CDHPI was provided by the Canadian Women’s Foundation.
