The New Brunswick Family Violence and the Workplace Committee, which is comprised of numerous community and business partnerships, wishes to thank Joy Mighty’s research team, Family Violence and the Work Place, for their groundbreaking and inspiring research into this topic. Thanks to the Muriel McQueen Fergusson Foundation who then originated the idea for developing this toolkit and the Fredericton Chamber of Commerce for taking the lead role in submission of funding proposals for the project. Thanks to Public Legal Education and Information Service of New Brunswick for compiling information from different sources and research studies, and overseeing the development, design and layout of the materials.
