Who We Are


RESOLVE is a member of the Alliance of Canadian Research Centres on gender-Based Violence, established by the federal government in 1992, following the 1989 murder of 14 women at Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal, QC. Comprised of seven centres (listed at right), the alliance has undertaken national studies. Our initial focus was on the victimization of girls and women but overtime our agenda has broadened in response to our growing understanding of violence in our society, without losing sight of the heightened risks faced by girls and women.
