Facts About IPV


North Bay Police responded to an average of 4-5 domestic violence calls each day in 2018 (North Bay Police Service Annual Report, 2018).

In 2013, about 80% of police-reported IPV victims were women (Statistics Canada, 2015).

Victims of IPV made up 28% of all victims of police-reported violent crime (Statistics Canada, 2017).

Adults in their twenties have the highest rate of being victims of IPV. This rate decreases as age increases (Statistics Canada, 2015).

IPV costs Canadian taxpayers billions of dollars each year (Department of Justice Canada, 2009).

About once a week in Canada, a woman is killed by her male partner (Canadian Femicide Observatory for Justice and Accountability, 2019).
