#FamilyJusticeNotViolence Recommendations:

  1. Increase funding for family law legal aid, raise the income cut-off for eligibility, and significantly increase the number of hours available per case. 

  2. Fund and implement comprehensive, community-based, wrap-around supports with no time limits for those escaping gender-based family violence. 

  3. Develop a framework and model for implementing domestic violence courts (DVCs) in BC and design a pilot project to immediately test the model. 

  4. Provide an initial lump sum payment equivalent to four months of income assistance for all those escaping gender-based family violence when they apply for assistance, and exempt them from the Expected to Work category for one year as recommended in the Expert Panel on Basic Income report. #JusticeAtWork

  5. Reduce the number of homicides of women and children as a result of gender-based domestic violence 50% by 2024.
