We are a Pan Canadian group of sexual assault centres who have come together to implement the legal, social and attitudinal changes necessary to prevent, and ultimately eradicate, rape and sexual assault. As feminists we recognize that violence against women is one of the strongest indicators of prevailing societal attitudes towards women. The intent of the Canadian Association is to act as a force for social change regarding violence against women at the individual, the institutional and the political level.

Nous sommes l’Association canadienne des centres contre le viol et nous avons comme but de travailler à promouvoir les changements nécessaires sur le plan juridique, social, et des attitudes qui visent à prévenir et, finalement, à abolir le viol et les agressions à caractère sexuel. En tant que féministes, nous reconnaissons que la violence envers les femmes est l’un des symptômes les plus révélateurs des attitudes dominantes dans notre société à l’égard des femmes. Dans une société qui perpétue les inégalités entre les hommes et les femmes, la violence et la sexualité coercitive se trouvent renforcées.

The Canadian Centre for Information on Missing Adults (CCIMA) is a bilingual online resource that acts as an information and referral centre for Canadian families and friends of missing individuals.  The goal of CCIMA is to provide Canadian families with useful and practical information to help them cope with the realities arising from having a missing adult loved one. To this end, CCIMA has created a series of fact sheets addressing issues and processes that need to be negotiated by families whose loved ones have disappeared. As well, existing guidebooks and information sheets have been included in the online resources to further aid families.  We also seek to provide professionals working with victims of crime and trauma with information and resources that will help them better serve families who report a missing adult. The website will also facilitate the development of relationships between law enforcement agencies, front line service providers, Internet volunteer groups, international agencies and Aboriginal groups in order to exchange information and make referrals to appropriate agencies.  The Canadian Centre for Information on Missing Adults is a cooperative project between the Canadian Resource Centre for Victims of Crime and Ontario’s Missing Adults.

Le Centre canadien d’information sur les adultes disparus (CCIAD) est une ressource bilingue en ligne agissant en tant que centre d’information, d’aiguillage et de réseautage desservant les familles et les amis canadiens de personnes disparues.  Nous essayons d’habiliter les familles canadiennes à comprendre les complexités qu’entraîne la disparition d’un adulte dans leur vie et à s’y adapter le mieux possible.  Nous essayons aussi de fournir aux professionnels œuvrant auprès de victimes d’actes criminels et de traumatismes, l’information et les ressources qui les aideront à mieux desservir les familles qui signalent la disparition d’un membre adulte. Notre site Web permettra également d’établir des liens entre les organismes responsables de l’application des lois, les fournisseurs de services de première ligne, les groupes bénévoles dans l’Internet, les organismes internationaux et les groupes aborigènes, afin de favoriser l’échange d’information et l’aiguillage vers les organismes appropriés.  Le Centre canadien d’information sur les adultes disparus (CCIAD) est un projet réalisé en coopération par le Centre canadien de ressources pour les victimes de crimes et Adultes disparus de l’Ontario.

Survivors of homicide victims go through the worst grief they will probably ever experience and are constantly being re-victimized by the inevitable bureaucracy that follows a murder, which compounds their trauma. CPOMC's mission is to fill the gap that exists after the judicial process is finished.  There are some wonderful and extremely dedicated groups in Canada that provide support to survivors within their own province, or city, but nothing existed on a national level until CPOMC was created.

CPOMC has developed a number of initiatives whereby the existing GAP can be reduced by connecting all survivors across Canada as well as those individuals and organizations working on behalf of survivors of murder  victims. Current CPOMC initiatives include monthly support meetings as well as public awareness and education materials
