Alliance of Canadian Research Centres on Gender-Based Violence
After the Montreal Massacre on December 6, 1989, the Canadian government made a commitment to deal with public policy, education, legislation and applied research on violence against women and children. One of the initiatives was the development of five sister centres across Canada (New Brunswick, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba and British Columbia) that would be centres of excellence on research and education on violence against women and more broadly gender-based violence. The Alliance of Canadian Research Centres on Gender-Based Violence represents the partnership among these centres and collaborative research and education initiatives.
In addition to the support provided by the three host universities (University of Manitoba, University of Calgary and University of Saskatchewan), the RESOLVE Network is funded by the Prairieaction Foundation.
The Prairieaction Foundation envisions a future in which society is free from violence and abuse. To make their vision a reality the Prairieaction Foundation funds action-oriented research to help end domestic violence and abuse in Canada. The Foundation works collectively with researchers, service agencies, first responders, government, businesses and concerned members of the community, to gain a better understanding of the complex issues that contribute to violence and to develop action-oriented solutions.
