It Happens Here, 4 in 10 women experience violence in a relationship according to statistics canada

Gender-based violence includes intimate partner violence, domestic violence and sexual violence and it happens to people everywhere regardless of age, gender etc. It disproportionately affects women, 2SLGBTQ+, Indigenous women and people with disabilities.   Peterborough is no exception.  Below you will find local statistics we’ve compiled with data provided by our community partners covering the Peterborough region.  Remember, this is only part of the picture.  There is exhaustive research that tells us that most people (of all genders) don’t report the violence or abuse they’ve experienced to police or to a service provider.
