VAW Legal Information Resource was developed from a two year training project designed to increase access to justice for First Nation, Métis and Inuit women facing violence by providing VAW service provider staff with a better understanding of key concepts in relevant areas of law. The project, Building Service Capacity: Supporting Access to Justice for Aboriginal Women Dealing with Violence was funded by the Law Foundation of Ontario. It provided legal support training for women’s shelter and outreach service staff in 10 communities, where agencies were serving a high number of First Nation, Métis or Inuit women dealing with violence.
