Government of New Brunswick


The Violence Prevention and Community Partnerships Unit implements the government’s plan on violence against women and violence against Aboriginal women, including funding programs and supporting community partners in delivering services. It creates linkages between various government departments and the community to coordinate efforts to respond to domestic violence and liaises directly with community groups working in the area of violence against women. Key focus areas for the unit are:

  • Prevention and promotion
  • Services
  • Networks and partnerships
  • Orientation and training
