In Canada, abuse is not tolerated, and both women and men are equal under the law. It is illegal to engage in any form of gender-based violence. Seek help immediately by calling 9-1-1 or local police if threatened or abused. Abuse can take many forms, including physical, emotional, financial, psychological, sexual, spiritual, or verbal.
