A Canadian model for building university and community partnerships: centre for research & education on violence against women and children.

Author information

Center for Research & Education on Violence against Women and Children, University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario, Canada.


The importance of Canadian research on violence against women became a national focus after the 1989 murder of 14 women at École Polytechnique in Montreal. This tragedy led to several federal government studies that identified a need to develop centers for applied research and community-university alliances on violence against women. One such center is the Centre for Research & Education on Violence against Women and Children. The Centre was founded in London, Canada in 1992 out of a partnership of a university, a community college, and community services. The centre's history and current activities are summarized as a model for the development and sustainability of similar centers.
