The Canadian Domestic Homicide Prevention Initiative with Vulnerable Populations (CDHPIVP) is conducting a research project to collect information on risk assessment, risk management, and safety planning for four populations identified as experiencing increased vulnerability for domestic homicide: (1) Indigenous; (2) Immigrants and refugees; (3) Rural, remote, and northern populations; (4) children exposed to domestic violence.

The CDHPIVP is looking for people who provide legal, health, educational, advocacy or social services to individuals dealing with domestic violence asvictims, perpetrators or children living with domestic/intimate partner violence to complete a brief, confidential online survey about your work, the groups you serve, and the tools you use.

If you agree to participate in this research, you will be asked to respond to a series of online survey questions. The survey is 12 questions long and we anticipate will take you 7-10 minutes to complete. Your responses will be kept confidential and will only be presented in aggregate form. At the end of the survey, you will be asked if you are interested in participating in a 30-60 minute interview by phone or by Skype in the coming months.
