|The VPI and Why
|The Violence Prevention Initiative (VPI) is a five year, multi- departmental, government community partnership to find long term solutions to the problem of violence against most at risk in our society- women, children, the elderly and other vulnerable groups who are victims of violence because of their race, ethnicity, sexual orientation or disability. The VPI is coordinated by Women’s Policy
|Office and include four major government departments (Health, Justice, Education and Human Resources and Employment) and six Regional Coordinating Committees. The VPI builds upon the work of the Provincial Strategy Against Violence. Its vision is that “people in our province will live in safe caring communities where there is an inherent respect for each other and violence is
|unacceptable”. The goals of the VPI are to enhance the community’s and governments capacity to coordinate violence prevention activities and service delivery in the regions, and to improve the coordination and quality of services and programs provided by government departments and agencies with violence related mandates.
