November is Family Violence Prevention Month (FVPM) in Alberta.
Alberta has the third highest rate of self-reported spousal violence among Canadian provinces. Please take the time this month to inform yourself of the warning signs of family violence and reach out the resources and supports available so we can work together to end family violence and build healthier relationships in our communities.
- The Family Violence Info Line (310-1818) is available toll-free to Albertans 24/7 in over 170 languages
- The Family Violence Info Line chat service is available 24/7 daily in English
- Emergency shelters throughout the province (such as Rowan House Society) provide safe locations to stay for people fleeing violent or abusive situations
- FRVS can assist you with additional information on local resources and supports
