In the past year, OAITH has provided three pre-budget submissions that have contained a number of recommendations created in consultation with OAITH’s member organizations. These recommendations highlight a number of long-standing gaps and limitations in funding and systemic barriers that need to be addressed to support VAW shelters and ensure shelters can remain open and accessible to women who are escaping violence and require support and services. Our recommendations highlight a number of issues and challenges that were either created or exacerbated as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
A new report is now available here, released on April 12th, 2021, which provides an overview of the recommendations that have been provided to the provincial government and how these recommendations have been considered and implemented in the provincial budget.
