MISSISSAUGA, ON, Sept. 26, 2014 /CNW/ – Today, the Honourable Dr. K. Kellie Leitch, Minister of Labour and Minister of Status of Women, and Wladyslaw Lizon, Member of Parliament for Mississauga East—Cooksville, announced Government of Canada support to help prevent and eliminate cyberviolence against women and girls in Mississauga and the Region of Peel.

Safe City Mississauga is receiving funding to work with girls and community partners to help determine the local prevalence of cyberviolence and develop and implement strategies to prevent and eliminate it. Girls will also form a cross-community peer network and act as project “ambassadors” to ensure community service providers, agencies, and diverse communities in Mississauga are linked to the project.

This project was selected through the Government of Canada’s call for proposals entitled Cyber and Sexual Violence: Helping Communities Respond.

  • The Government of Canada has provided over $146 million in funding through Status of Women Canada since 2007, supporting over 720 projects across Canada. This includes more than $70 million for projects to prevent violence against women and girls.
