Woman Killing: Intimate Femicide in Ontario, 1974-1994

Research article about numbers and trends in femicide in Ontario during the past 20 years
publication date: 
Sep 10, 1999

This paper reviews major findings from our research on women killed by their intimate partners in Ontario. Between 1974 and 1994, killings by intimate partners accounted for between 63% and 76% of all women killed in Ontario. We document trends in intimate femicide, characteristics of victims and offenders, circumstances of the killings, and criminal justice responses to offenders. We also discuss the gender-specific nature of intimate femicides and identify ways in which intimate partner killings by males and females are distinctly different.

National Trends in Intimate Partner Homicides Explaining Declines in Canada, 1976 to 2001

Research article that explains the reasons for the decline in domestic homicide in Canada
publication date: 
Jul 9, 2009

In the past decade, research has begun to identify factors that may be contributing to declines in spousal homicide. The authors address two gaps in the Canadian literature: (a) the documentation of trends, including subgroup variations, and (b) the identification of factors that may be associated with declines. Using Statistics Canada data, the authors assess the association of declines with various factors.
