Purpose: This 24-month project will address the institutional barriers and other factors that limit community efforts to prevent and reduce violence against women and girls in the James Bay area of Northern Quebec, in the communities of Mistissini, Chisasibi, and Whapmagoostui. The project will engage men and boys, women and girls, and key partner agencies such as the Cree Men of Eeyou Istchee. In partnership with community stakeholders, promising strategies to address violence against women and girls will be identified, and a strategy will be piloted in the community. Lessons learned will be shared with other Cree communities in the region.
