Financial Abuse Research Project: A Community Based Research Project on Financial Abuse as a form of Intimate Partner Violence in the Toronto Area
WomanACT is undertaking community-based research into women’s experience of financial abuse as a form of intimate partner violence (IPV) in the Toronto area.
WomanACT is working with researchers at the University of Guelph to explore the nature of financial abuse and the impact of financial abuse on women. We are also looking to better understand how financial abuse can be addressed and prevented.
The project will include a literature review as well as undertake surveys, interviews and focus groups with Women with Lived Experience of financial abuse and with service providers working in the Violence Against Women sector. The project will develop a final report with the research findings as well as hold community education workshops with service providers.
The project is funded by the City of Toronto Community Projects and Events Grant Program.
