Family Violence in Canada: A Statistical Profile, 2015

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."
