Access to Justice for Family Violence in Nunavut - Gloria Song, Nalini Vaddapalli, Maya Doyon-Hanson & Rebecca Jones

Part of:
9:00 AM, Friday 4 Oct 2019 (30 minutes)
This presentation will provide preliminary updates on a joint partnership project by Pauktuutit Inuit Women of Canada and the Law Society of Nunavut. This two-year participatory action research project funded by the Law Foundation of Ontario will study how Nunavut's Family Abuse Intervention Act is meeting the needs of survivors of intimate partner violence in Nunavut to identify barriers in accessing justice and unmet legal needs. The results of this research component will then be used to develop key messages for a comprehensive public awareness campaign to break the silence on family violence in Nunavut, by strengthening the public's capacity to recognize abusive situations and to increase the public's awareness of available legal options to deal with it.
