A Guidebook for LGBTQ2S+ and Intimate Partner Violence Service Providers in Canada (2017)

This 2017 guidebook should be used as a training and information tool for service providers within the LGBTQ2S+ community. It is important that service providers have an understanding of the implications of intimate partner violence in order to then transfer the appropriate information to victims. This guidebook covers the definitions of IPV, how to recognize instances of IPV, victims’ rights in Canada, what to expect should the victim choose to report to police, and the consequences of IPV.
