Family Violence in Canada

The Canadian Centre for Justice Statistics (part of Statistics Canada) just released a new profile entitled Family Violence in Canada: A Statistical Profile 2006.


"This is the ninth annual Family Violence in Canada: A Statistical Profile report produced by the Canadian Centre for Justice Statistics under the Federal Family Violence Initiative. This annual report provides the most current data on the nature and extent of family violence in Canada, as well as trends over time, as part of the ongoing initiative to inform policy makers and the public about family violence issues."

"Each year the report has a different focus. This year, the focus is on examining, for the first time, the criminal history of persons charged with spousal violence over a 10-year timeframe (1995 to 2004). This is the first time the CCJS has examined spousal violence and repeat contact with the police, based on police-reported data from the Incident-based Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR2) Survey. In addition, the report presents an analysis of family violence against children and youth, older adults (65+) and spouses. The report also includes results from the 2003 Canadian Incidence Study of Reported Child Abuse and Neglect funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada."
