Anti-Violence Worker Support

Join a Community of Practice

EVA BC has seven Communities of Practice (CoPs) for programs and coordination initiatives under our provincial umbrella:

  • Program support CoPs:
    1. Stopping the Violence Counselling programs (STVC)
    2. Stopping the Violence and Multicultural Outreach programs (STV ORS and MORS) – collectively referred to as Outreach services (ORS)
    3. Community-Based Victim Services programs (CBVS)
  • Emergency Sexual Assault Services (ESAS) CoPs:
    1. General Emergency Sexual Assault Services
    2. Indigenous Emergency Sexual Assault Services
  • Coordination (CCWS) CoPs:
    1. Community Coordination
    2. Interagency Case Assessment Teams (ICATs)

The Communities of Practice 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.
