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.
