From CTV News Winnipeg–Manitoba teens are among the highest in Canada to experience dating violence according to a new report.

Statistics Canada shared new information about dating violence against teens between the ages of 15 and 17 in Canada, from 2009 to 2022. The data was compiled from a 2018 survey where information was self-reported, as well as from police reports dating back to 2009.

It found that four in 10 teens experienced some sort of violence in a relationship – emotional, physical or sexual – since they have turned 15.

Emotional abuse was the most reported in the survey – ranging in several forms from jealousy and put downs, to being told they are not good enough and being harassed on the phone or online.
