The purpose of Saskatchewan Violence Prevention Week (SVPW) is to focus on public awareness and prevention of violence by engaging government, community partners, and individuals to promote safe communities and healthy relationships. Saskatchewan Violence Prevention Week will be held from October 24-October 28, 2022.

The theme for this year is 'It Starts With You'. We invite individuals, communities, and organizations to join in Saskatchewan Violence Prevention Week 2022!


About the Theme

As we continue to face the realities of interpersonal violence and abuse across Saskatchewan there is a growing need for each person to take responsibility to address violence.

The theme ‘It Starts With You’ asks all of us to be a part of making change happen in our homes, families, and communities.  It starts with each of us to learn, educate ourselves and act to support those who experience or use violence. It Starts With You - It Starts With Me – It Starts With All of Us to build a healthy, vibrant Saskatchewan where all people are valued equally and live free from violence and abuse.
