The Ontario government is investing $25.5 million over two years to help address the rise of hate incidents against religious and minority groups. The new Anti-Hate Security and Prevention Grant will help faith-based and cultural organizations enhance or implement measures to ensure community spaces remain safe and secure.
This FREE online course is developed to help front-line practitioners working with immigrant and refugee communities to better understand issues of gender-based violence (GBV) and develop a supportive response for survivors with intersectional identities.
Refugee women sometimes experience intimate partner violence. Do you know how pre-migration and migration trauma can impact the safety of refugee women and their families? Do you know how to work collaboratively with violence against women experts in your community? Does your organization have policies and protocols in place to help you respond safely and effectively to situations of intimate partner violence?
We hope that you will accept our invitation to take advantage of this free training for yourself or your organization to help standardize your RAP workers' approach to aiding female refugee survivors of violence.

Australia’s mainstream media has long viewed refugees, migrants and Indigenous communities through a “deficit lens”. That’s where these populations – in all their glorious complexity – are framed simply as a “problem” that needs to be “fixed”. Never achieving enough. Never grateful enough. Just never quite deserving enough to be seen as legitimate Australians.

Canada is credited for having one of the world’s most immigrant-friendly policies, ranking fourth internationally in the Migrant Integration Policy Index. But the criteria used to prioritize applicants based on age leaves many at a disadvantage, even though they might have the qualifications Canada is looking for.
To those who misunderstand the need for critical race theory, learning about and understanding the legacy of racism in Canada and the world is critical to our collective future.
