Jaffe, Academic Director of The University of Western Ontario’s Centre for Research and Education on Violence Against Women & Children, was named to the Order of Canada for Social Service, “for his influential work and extensive voluntarism in improving the response of Canada’s legal, educational and social service systems to family violence and the abuse of women and children.”
