All parts of Canada have police and Crown prosecutor and spousal abuse policies to ensure that spousal violence is treated as seriously as stranger violence.
The police might arrest the person if they believe the person has broken the law.
If you are afraid, tell the Crown prosecutor or your victim services worker.
In addition to criminal sanctions, the following provincial and territorial child protection laws provide for state intervention where a child is in need of protection.
If someone has abused you, you should tell the police.
Even where no offence has been committed yet, where personal injury or damage is feared, courts can also order peace bonds or recognizances, which require an individual to agree to specific conditions to keep the peace (Section 810).
Special consideration is given to the harm that comes from family violence.
If the person who abused you gets probation, the judge might release them with conditions.
