November is Domestic Violence Awareness Month in Canada.

Genesis House in Winkler will be doing several things to acknowledge the occasion.

Executive Director Ang Braun says they will be releasing a cook book called "Cook for Safety".

Braun adds they are also releasing a new brochure which speaks to new domestic abuse statistics.

She says they are seeing an increase in reported cases because women aren't staying in abusive relationships as long, and are reporting them.

Braun notes a vigil will be held to remember those who died in the Montreal massacre on December 6, 1989.
