Webinar: Culturally-Relevant Services for Indigenous Survivors of Domestic Violence



In the wake of the MMIWG Inquiry and as part of the process of reconciliation, VAW shelters and transition houses across the country are thinking about what it means to offer culturally safe and relevant services to Indigenous women who have experienced domestic violence. During this webinar, recorded on October 14, the Provincial Association of Transition Houses and Services of Saskatchewan (PATHS) shared what they learned through the Nato’ we ho win project, a 12-week program that addresses the mental and physical health needs of Indigenous women who have experienced intimate partner violence. The Cariboo Friendship Society also explained how their collaborative approach enables them to provide a wide range of culturally relevant services to Indigenous women.
