Violence Against Women Training Hub

Our courses are designed to train those who are either working or would like to work in programs and organizations who are supporting survivors of gender-based violence.  For those working in the broader social services sector who want to increase their skills and knowledge about gender-based violence, OAITH’s Training Hub will equip you to be prepared to respond effectively and promote survivor safety outcomes for those you are supporting.  

To access our courses we do charge a course administration fee for those who are not employees of VAW Shelter or Transitional Housing organizations in Ontario.  These administration fees assist us in keeping content up to date and allows us to maintain the training hub.  Payments are processed through paypal. Fees are subject to change, however learners will be notified should fees change.

Alternatively, joining as an Ally Organization of OAITH (Organizations offering a GBV program/service that isn't a shelter or transitional housing), will provide you access to the Training Hub for all of your employees along with other benefits.  To learn more about this option please visit Become A Member to learn more about this option.  

All employees working in VAW Shelter or Transitional Housing Organizations have free access to the Training Hub.

All of our courses are self-paced, unless a course offering indicates otherwise.  For example, sometimes we might have a course that is moderated or time-limited, or we may offer a course for free for a period of time.
