Collection of data for the Niagara Region Domestic Violence Report Card Project (DVRCP) ended in June 2009. The initial premise for the report card was to provide the community with a ‘snapshot in time’ of the response to the issue of violence against women. However, we were cognizant of the fact that this is not a static issue and that since June 2009 there have continued to be new and evolving issues in the Niagara Region that merit attention. This Supplementary Report is meant to highlight three additional themes that have emerged since the initial report card was written. They include; the impact of the economic slowdown, changes to Legal Aid, and innovations in practice. This resource is also included in the Sustainable Niagara Action Database.
