Transitional Support and Housing Program

Are you a M├ętis, Inuit or First Nations woman who:

  • has left or is thinking of leaving an abusive relationship?
  • feels your safety is at risk?
  • feels isolated?
  • doesn't know where to begin?
  • wants to find out more about abusive relationships?
  • is living with violence?

The Transitional Support and Housing Program is designed to help you with practical supports such as:

  • safety planning
  • finding and maintaining housing
  • advocating for your rights
  • accessing basic financial assistance
  • court support
  • accompaniment to appointments
  • connecting you and your children to community support services

To find our more about this program or to access services please call our Transitional Support and Housing Worker at (613) 741-5590 ext. 233.
