Abuse Is Wrong In Any Culture: Inuit

Emergency Checklist

  • important papers, or photocopies, of birth certificates, health cards, child custody or other court orders (such as restraining order), your social insurance card, your partner's social insurance number
  • money, credit cards, debit cards, cheque book, bank book, bank statement (save money if you can … some women keep spare money wrapped in tin foil in the freezer, so it looks like leftover food)
  • medicine
  • your clothing and valuable jewellery
  • driver's licence, car/skidoo/ATV keys
  • house keys
  • children's clothes and favourite toys
  • an escape route and place to go all planned out.
