All information (including application forms) on the newly implemented Intimate Partner Violence Intervention Act can be found here...

What is an Emergency Intervention Order?

"An Emergency Intervention Order (EIO) is an order made under the Intimate Partner Violence Intervention Act on application of someone experiencing intimate partner violence. These orders may contain a variety of temporary conditions to enhance the safety of victims. They may include, for example, provisions for the applicant to temporarily stay in the family residence (apartment, house, mobile home, etc.) while the partner (respondent) must move out. Emergency Intervention Orders are intended for situations where intimate partner violence has occurred or is likely to occur, and the situation is serious enough to require an immediate response." - PLEIS Pamphlet on EIO
