We acknowledge that the land on which Haldimand & Norfolk Women’s Services resides is the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee, Anishinaabe, and Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation and was the subject of both the Haldimand Treaty and Treaty 3 in 1792.
Haldimand & Norfolk Women’s Services is committed to working in solidarity with struggles for justice in the cases of murdered and missing indigenous women, children and two-spirit peoples and promoting Indigenous sovereignty and self-determination.
We recognize this land is home to many diverse Indigenous peoples and we name the theft and violence that has preceded us so that we can have the opportunity to work in the community, on this territory towards a more just future together.
Here to Help
A world in which every person has undisputed safety and security.
Women’s shelters are one of the first places that women who have experienced abuse can go to feel safe. Shelter space allows women to temporarily live in a place where they can navigate the next steps of their journey with the support and resources they require.
Haldimand Norfolk Women’s Services provides help for victims of gender-based violence. Intimate partner violence is a serious issue in Canada, half of all women in Canada have experienced at least one incident of physical or sexual violence since the age of 16 and most cases are never reported to the police. Approximately every 6 days a woman in Canada is killed by her intimate partner. You are not alone. We will walk with you, support you, and advocate for you.
