Family Violence Prevention Program

The Family Violence Prevention Program (FVPP) serves First Nation communities across the country, supporting the daily activities of 46 shelters to improve the safety and security of Indigenous women, children, and families. The shelters provide immediate refuge as well as support and education to help prevent future violence.

The FVPP was recently allocated an additional $10 million to support shelters in First Nations communities.
