RESOLVE is one of five research centres on family violence and violence against women that the federal government established in 1992, following the 1989 murder of 14 women at Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal, QC. The five centres have formed an alliance and undertaken national studies. Our initial focus was on the victimization of girls and women. However, this agenda has broadened over time in response to our growing understanding of violence in our society, without losing sight of the heightened risks faced by girls and women.
