Anti-Violence Worker Support

Communities of Practice

The Communities of Practice (CoPs) are forums for programs to share information and resources, to identify and discuss shared concerns and issues, to celebrate successes, to ask questions and find answers, to network, and to engage in discussion on work-related issues. Get more information in our Community of Practice Q&A.

EVA BC has six Communities of Practice for programs and coordination initiatives under our provincial umbrella:

Program Support Communities of Practice

Coordination (CCSS) Communities of Practice

  • Stopping the Violence Counselling (STVC) programs
  • Outreach Services (ORS) — includes Stopping the Violence Outreach Services (STV ORS) and Multicultural Outreach Services (MORS) programs
  • Community-Based Victim Services programs (CBVS) programs
  • Sexual Assault Service (SAS) programs
  • Community Coordination

To join any of the Program Support Communities of Practice, you must be a frontline staff carrying a caseload in a Stopping the Violence Counselling (STVC), Stopping the Violence Outreach (STV ORS) or Multicultural Outreach (MORS), Community-Based Victim Services (CBVS), or Sexual Assault Services (SAS) program funded by the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General (MPSSG), and your organization must be a current EVA BC core member. Please note that executive directors must also be carrying a caseload to join any of the Program Support Communities of Practice.
