The Ministry of Attorney General implemented a wife assault policy in April 1984. The policy directs the justice system to recognize the criminality of the assault of women by their husbands or common law partners, and is aimed at coordinating the efforts of the justice system and community support agencies to provide effective responses to wife assault in the community. In 1990, the Ministry of Attorney General proposed to institute the Wife Assault Coordination Project in five British Columbia communities, including Vancouver.
