Protecting Albertans from Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault
Brought in Clare’s Law, an Act that gives people who feel at risk of domestic violence a way to get information about their partners so they can make informed choices about their safety. Alberta’s version of Clare’s Law is named after a young woman killed by an ex-boyfriend with a history of violence against women.
Joined the federal government and other provinces and territories in officially endorsing the National Action Plan to End Gender-Based Violence.
Partnered with Women and Gender Equality Canada to provide crisis support to Albertans who are experiencing gender-based violence.
Provided over $52 million to sexual assault centres to improve access to counselling and support.
Directed $700,000 to Ruth’s House in Calgary to support survivors of domestic violence in the African community.
Put in place legislation preventing convicted violent offenders from legally changing their name, including convicted sex offenders, keeping our communities safer for children and vulnerable Albertans.
