2021 Canadian Violence Link Conference
Dates: November 04, 2021 - November 05, 2021
Animal abuse often occurs before or alongside the abuse of people. This is known as the “violence link.” In a social system that is over taxed and underfunded, the sector marginalizes animal welfare, even though evidence shows there is greater benefit in acting holistically, thereby providing better support for victims and reducing the vulnerability of animals and people. The Canadian Violence Link Conference is an innovative, ground-breaking event that examines the link between interpersonal abuse and animal abuse, looking at the vulnerabilities in both populations and how they intersect. This biennial conference brings together criminal justice system stakeholders that work to prevent and address violence against people or animals for cross-sectoral training on how to collaborate and stop the cycle of violence.
The Canadian Violence Link Conference is an opportunity for stakeholders whose work intersects with the Violence Link to gather, learn and network. This event runs from Nov. 4 – 5, 2021.
You will have the opportunity to deepen your understanding of the Violence Link and learn about the latest trends and intervention strategies designed to end the cycle of violence. This two-day conference will feature interactive, engaging sessions where you can network with professionals in your region, learn how to break down silos and build important relationships that will assist you in your day to day work.
