Stopping gender-based violence — Shift: the Project to End Domestic Violence strives to understand men’s role in feminism and advancing gender equality in Canada. We are learning how we can help socialize and support more men and boys to advance gender equality and stop gender-based violence.
Supporting Indigenous youth: The Social Work Indigenous Circle partners with Indigenous youth who have ‘aged out’ of foster care, providing them with culturally based supports, educational opportunities, and the personal and economic support needed to successfully pursue a degree in social work.
Support Children's Mental Health: Our Wood's Homes Research chair in children's mental health is Canada's first community-based chair in children's mental health. Dr. Angelique Jenney says, "I intend to break some myths that are taught about traumatized children and parents and their mental health challenges. And I’ve learned that it’s never too late for repair.”
