LCCEWA accomplishes its objectives through a number of standing and task committees.

Standing Committees

Executive Committee

The purpose of the Executive Committee is to manage the affairs of the LCCEWA and to oversee the strategic planning of the organization. The Executive Committee is comprised of six members of the LCCEWA: the Chair, Vice Chair, Past Chair, Secretary, and two members-at-large.

Advocacy & Communications Committee

The Advocacy and Communications Committee develops and implements an annual communication plan and advocacy strategy to raise awareness of violence against women and children, and respond to emerging issues. Projects include media engagement, advocacy, and planning for the annual John H. Robinson award.

Neighbours, Friends and Families Advisory Committee

The purpose of the NFF Advisory Committee is to coordinate and assist the local activities that members of the LCCEWA and their stakeholders are doing with respect to NFF in their own workplaces. Activities include supporting LCCEWA members to champion the NFF campaign, tracking and coordinating local activities, recognizing local workplace champions, and supporting the NFF campaign in the community.

Membership Standing Committee

The Membership Committee reviews and assesses membership making recommendations to the Executive. Their goal is to actively recruit more representatives from various ethno-cultural organizations and those that represent the diversity of the community.

Centre for Research and Education on Violence Against Women and Children Advisory Committee

The members of this Committee sit on the Centre’s Advisory Board as representatives of the LCCEWA to facilitate discussion and generate ideas for relevant research that supports the work of community agencies and organizations in their efforts to end violence against women and children.

Task Committees

Framework Task Committee

The Framework Task Committee was established as a result of strategic planning priorities. The committee is working to develop a framework that describes a fully functioning integrated system of services to end woman abuse, that identifies the challenges and service gaps within the community, and that utilizes opportunities to create collaborative projects to meet those gaps. With long term outcomes of social justice and gender equality, the LCCEWA approaches include prevention, advocacy, direct support, justice, policy, and research.
