Welcome to Canadian Domestic Homicide Prevention Initiative
Canadian Domestic Homicide Prevention Initiative
Domestic homicides account for 1 in 5 murders in Canada. Each province and territory is involved in learning from these deaths through domestic violence death review committees, coroners' investigations, inquests, inquiries or research studies.
The Canadian Domestic Homicide Prevention Initiative (CDHPI) is a knowledge hub for this information to help inform promising practices in homicide prevention. In particular, the CDHPI is focused on identifying emerging risk assessment, management, and safety planning strategies. The CDHPI has produced a clickable map to highlight this work in each jurisdiction.
The Canadian Domestic Homicide Prevention Initiative with Vulnerable Populations (CDHPIVP) is a five-year SSHRC partnership grant (2015-2020) that explores the unique needs of Indigenous, immigrant and refugee, rural, remote, and northern communities, and children exposed to domestic violence.

The September 2018 edition of the CDHPIVP newsletter is now available and offers updates on project research, knowledge mobilization, and member updates.
This brief is the fourth in the series developed by the Canadian Domestic Homicide Prevention Initiative with Vulnerable Populations (CDHPIVP). The Brief provides definitions, describes the context and unique risk factors for domestic homicide within immigrant and refugee populations, and highlights culturally-informed and culturally-specific domestic violence risk assessment, risk management, and safety planning strategies to respond to, and prevent, potentially lethal domestic violence. National community-based research and resources are highlighted.
