Government of New Brunswick


November is Family Violence Prevention Month

Family violence continues to affect the lives of many New Brunswickers. Violence does not belong in our homes or in our relationships. Eliminating family violence is not a task for one government, one community, one organization or one individual. Together, we must continue to promote education and awareness programs of family violence to ensure that the people we care most about have a safe place to live.



Service New Brunswick Minister Sherry Wilson, who is also the minister responsible for women’s equality, signed a declaration designating November as Family Violence Prevention Month in New Brunswick.
