About:

WomanACT is a council of organizations dedicated to addressing Violence Against Women and children by promoting a Toronto-wide integrated, coordinated response through leadership, education and community mobilization.

History:

The Woman Abuse Council of Toronto was created in 1991 under the name Metro Woman Abuse Protocol Project by the office of the Chairman of Metropolitan Toronto. For the first eight years, the organization operated as a community-based coalition under the trusteeship of Jewish Family and Children’s Services. In 1999, the name was changed to the Woman Abuse Council of Toronto and the council was incorporated as an independent non-profit organization. In January 2010, the Woman Abuse Council of Toronto, adopted a second official name: WomanACT, and was granted charitable status. Today, the Woman Abuse Council of Toronto is an incorporated, social profit, non-partisan and voluntary membership-based organization with a General Council of 30 members who represent key community agencies and institutions working to provide a community response to woman abuse. The organization is governed by a Board of Directors and employs paid staff members who provide support to the Council and its committees and networks.
