Men in Change

Men in Change is a program that provides counselling and education to immigrant men who have threatened, attempted or committed domestic violence against their partners, or are at risk of such behaviour. 

The program’s main objective is to prevent the occurrence or reoccurrence of physical and/or psychological abuse within families by:

  • Understanding and overcoming domestic violence
  • Identifying and expressing a full range of emotions besides anger
  • Discovering personal triggers and gaining stress-management tools  
  • Learning constructive ways of dealing with conflict

Men in Change offers the following programs:
Relationship Violence Prevention Program - Cultural Edition (RVPP-CE): A 17-week group-treatment program funded by the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General for Punjabi, Hindi, Urdu, Farsi, Spanish or Vietnamese-speaking men referred by their probation officers. Once assessed and accepted to the program, attendance and participation become part of each participant’s terms of probation.

Men in Change Community Program: Funded by the Ministry for Children and Family Development (MCFD), this program aims to prevent domestic violence. Self-referred participants or those referred by MCFD, community workers or family members may receive individual and/or group counselling in English or Spanish. Interpreters may also be used when a prospective client is not fluent in either of the two above languages. Individual counselling takes a short-term, solution-focused approach. 

PARTICIPATION: Rather than act on their emotions, male participants are encouraged to reflect and share. Through group education and individual support, participants become aware of the non-adaptive tactics they use in their relationships. This awareness helps them take responsibility for their actions and put an end to the mistreatment of their partners and/or families.

This service is free and confidential.
