The Canadian Centre for Justice Statistics has released its most recent annual report on Family Violence in Canada: A Statistical Profile
"The 2015 edition of the report features an in-depth analysis of
self-reported childhood maltreatment in Canada, using data from the
2014 General Social Survey on Canadians' Safety (Victimization).
This featured section examines the nature and prevalence of
self-reported childhood physical and sexual abuse in Canada, as well as
the issue of children witnessing violence in the home. The analysis is
based on adult Canadians’ recollections of child abuse they
experienced before they turned 15 years of age, and includes incidents
that were reported to police as well as those that were not. The
featured section also provides analysis of the socio-demographic risk
factors linked to child maltreatment and the impacts and consequences it
has for victims."
"As in past years, this year’s report also includes sections
dedicated to police-reported data on family violence in general,
intimate partner violence specifically, violence against children and
youth and violence against seniors."
