The Gender Based Violence Navigation Advocate provides support for women who are experiencing or are at risk of experiencing physical and/or sexual violence or coercive control by a partner, family member or acquaintance. Women who are navigating various court systems may also access court advocacy.

We can help by:

  • Ensuring that women who are experiencing or at high risk of gender-based violence have access to ongoing and appropriate support and referrals  
  • Coordinating with Violence Against Women service providers to ensure that critical information is shared
  • Assisting with preparing for court  
  • Ensuring coordination between various legal sectors (criminal, family, immigration etc.)  
  • Providing court accompaniment and emotional support  

This service is intended to enhance the effectiveness of the existing VAW response, not duplicate or replace it.
