Hot off the press: Relationship abuse fact sheets now available online in five more languages

Three fact sheets in the Live Safe — End Abuse series are now available online in Chinese (simplified and traditional), Farsi, Punjabi, and Spanish. The series is designed to inform and educate readers about relationship abuse (domestic violence), and covers 11 topics.

We identified three topics that would be of most help to someone who is dealing with domestic violence.

  • Getting Help from the Police or RCMP explains the right to call police in abusive situations, how police can help, and what happens when an abuser is arrested.
  • Safety Planning gives details about how to make a safety plan for use at home, outside the home, and after leaving an abusive relationship.
  • The Criminal Court Process describes what happens when an abuser faces criminal charges, what it means to be a trial witness, what happens at trial, and possible sentences.

All the fact sheets list community support services and legal resources for more help (phone numbers, websites, and publications). See Abuse & family violence for a complete list of all the fact sheets in this series.

The new versions are available online only.
