Contrary to popular belief, the pandemic has not ended workplace harassment; in fact, in the virtual world, in the absence of colleagues and due to increased isolation, it has instead become more likely.
To help victims, employers and colleagues, Action Ontario Against Violence Against Women presents its new awareness campaign, It doesn’t happen anymore!
These various tools aim to change mentalities, help victims and colleagues better understand their remedies, and present information to employers on their responsibilities.
During this period of confinement and social distancing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the team against violence against women at the Hamilton / Niagara Community Health Center continues to offer personalized and confidential support services to women victims of violence and assault of a sexual nature as well as their relatives.
Those who require our services can contact our reception service directly by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone for the Hamilton site at 905-528-0163 or 1-866-437-7606 and for the Welland site at 905-734-1141 or 1-866-885-5947.
