Tech Safety Canada is a project of Women’s Shelters Canada. It equips shelter and transition house workers with the knowledge and resources they need to support women, children, and gender-diverse people with their experiences of Technology-Facilitated Gender-Based Violence (TFGBV) by scaling up BC Society of Transition House’s existing Technology Safety Project. This work draws on the experience of partners from WESNET Australia and the National Network to End Domestic Violence in the United States.

The Tech Safety Canada project will:

  • Create and develop Canadian tech safety resources
  • Launch a new Tech Safety Canada website to host these resources
  • Train anti-violence workers across Canada about TFGBV
  • Work with corporate partners in the technology and communications sector on corporate tech safety practices

According to Women’s Shelters Canada data from 2022, more than 96% of responding domestic violence shelters in Canada served women who had experienced TFGBV. This high level of violence has been corroborated by a BC Society of Transition Houses 2021 survey of anti-violence services, which found that 89% of responding anti-violence workers have supported women, children and youth who have experienced technology-facilitated gender-based violence.

Tech Safety Canada’s mission, vision, and core values align with those of Women’s Shelters Canada.

This two-year project is made possible by funding from the department of Women and Gender Equality (WAGE) Canada.
