Violence Against Women

The City of North Vancouver recognizes that violence against women is an insidious problem with devastating social, economic and personal costs. Women are victimized every day at home, in the work place and on our streets. Their victimization includes various types of abuse: physical, sexual, emotional, verbal and financial.

The City of North Vancouver recognizes that assaults on women undermine the values that our residents revere, and upon which we are trying to build a just, tolerant community. As such, the City has adopted a zero tolerance position and developed a Violence Against Women Policy, which outlines the principles and implementation strategy that will guide municipal action.
