CFI-funded Data Lab: Invisible Victims of Sexual Abuse

CRCF Members in this Project: Delphine Collin-Vézina

Principal Investigator: Delphine Collin-Vézina
Funding Source: Canadian Foundation for Innovation (CFI)
Period: 2008–2010

This fund will ensure the development of the LAB-DASE, a data lab on child sexual abuse. The goal of this lab will be to access a representative population of abused children and adolescents. A unique Canadian dataset will be created through data collection from various locations, such as the Montreal Children’s Hospital and Batshaw Youth and Family Centres, and collaborations with the Network for Aboriginal Mental Health Research and the First Nations of Quebec and Labrador Health and Social Services Commission, in order to target First Nations communities. In addition, data from CIS (1998, 2003 and 2008) will be analyzed to grasp the extent of child sexual abuse incidence in Canada.
