Moving out because of fear of violence or abuse

Waterloo Community Legal Services has a tip sheet that explains how a person experiencing domestic violence or sexual abuse may be able to end their tenancy early. The tipsheet explains how to complete a Form N15 – Tenant’s Notice to End my Tenancy Because of Fear of Sexual or Domestic Violence and Abuse - and what must be included when giving the form to their landlord. It also has information on the steps to take next and how the N15 might affect other tenants living in the unit.  

Rural and remote survivors of intimate partner violence 

Luke’s Place has a toolkit on how to support survivors of intimate partner violence who live in rural or remote areas. The first section of the resource explains how living in a rural or remote location, or in a small community, impacts women experiencing intimate partner violence. The second section of the resource focuses on ways to support violence survivors in these areas. The toolkit is part of Neighbours, Friends and Families (NFF), a program of Western University’s Centre for Research and Education on Violence Against Women and Children. The program offers training for anyone who is concerned about a person experiencing intimate partner violence.

The Income Security and Advocacy Centre has an information sheet on how a person’s benefits from the Canada Pension Plan Disability (CPP-D) program may be affected when they return to work.
