University of Guelph – Financial Abuse as a Form of Intimate Partner Violence in the Toronto Area
Area: Violence against women
In collaboration with the Woman Abuse Council of Toronto (WomanAct), this research was conducted to understand how financial abuse as a form of intimate partner violence manifests in Toronto. Data was gathered through focus groups with service providers and interviews with women survivors. Using a community-based, qualitative approach allowed us to thoroughly explore women’s experiences and suggest socially-grounded paths forward. WomanAct has used the findings from this research to bring visibility to this issue and develop knowledge translation initiatives. Notably, press coverage of the project resulted in a response from women in the community who identified with the findings.
