Programming responses for intimate partner violence: J2-444/2017E-PDF

“The Department Justice Canada has a mandate to ensure a strong justice system response to family violence with appropriate criminal laws and procedures that ensure offender accountability. While there is no specific family violence offence in the Criminal Code, there is a wide range of offences related to the use of physical and sexual violence that are applicable within intimate partner relationships. Such offenses are referred to in this report as intimate partner violence (IPV). Criminal Code sentencing provisions consider IPV as an aggravating factor and have been designed to provide sanctions that are both punitive and rehabilitative. This report was undertaken for the Research and Statistics Division and the Family, Children and Youth Section of the Department of Justice Canada to provide a better understanding of the current landscape of programming aimed at perpetrators of IPV across Canada. The report also augments the now archived 2008 Directory of Canada’s Treatment Programs for Men Who Abuse Their Partners, one of a series of directories prepared under the Family Violence Initiative of the Government of Canada”--Introd., p. 5.
