International Women’s Day has been observed since in the early 1900’s to celebrate the economic, political and social achievements of women. This day is now recognized in some way in almost every country in the world. This year PSHSA is joining with the Ministry of Labour and the Ontario Women’s Directorate to support International Women’s Day by offering a webinar on preventing domestic violence in the workplace.

 

On average, seven per cent of Ontario women living in a common-law or marital relationship are victims of violence from a spousal partner and each year in Ontario there are approximately 25 female victims and two male victims of spousal homicide.

 

To mark this date, we encourage our clients to attend the Domestic Violence in the Workplace webinar on March 26th, 11-1:00 p.m. Please click here for more information on how to register.
