Enhanced Safety: Risk Assessment Tool in Family Courts

The Clinic received funding from The Law Foundation of Ontario for a two-year project to create a risk assessment tool that will take into account the complex lived realities of survivors and current understandings of gender-based violence (GBV). The risk assessment tool takes into consideration physical, emotional, mental, social/cultural, financial, legal and spiritual abuse and will also take into account the multiple sources of oppression and systemic barriers that women experience.

The Final Report

The Final Report offers a compilation of background research and data collected for the purpose of designing the Intimate Partner Violence Risk Assessment Tool. We are grateful to The Law Foundation of Ontario for their financial support of this project.

Risk Assessment Manual

The User Guide outlines important information pertaining to the value of risk assessment, intimate partner violence and the family courts. This document should be read before and used in tandem with RIA Assessment Tool.
