Prevention of Violence Canada is opposed to all forms of collective violence. The use of military weapons on civilian population is especially abhorrent. We recognize that violent conflict leads to trauma for everyone involved and adverse childhood experiences during conflict often have generational consequences of trauma, morbidity and mortality for those exposed. The war in Ukraine is in direct contravention of international law and contravenes the UN Common Agenda and UN Sustainable Development Goals for peace and justice. We encourage all Canadians to support humanitarian relief efforts and support the Canadian government in providing refuge and security to international victims of war.
