Shelter Movers Ottawa was the second chapter to open. Opened in October 2017, Ottawa has since grown exponentially! The Ottawa Chapter works with referral agencies across the city, and are regularly adding more as they expand their reach to within 100km of Ottawa. 


Online abuse creates additional barriers to leaving. Favourable media treatment of abusers, gaslighting and compounded shame can make finding a way out even more difficult for survivors. Seeing people they know write or support hateful content affirms survivors’ worries that few people believe or support them.
