"We can see the potential for abusers to use the virus to further isolate women."

We do know that domestic violence is all about power and control, so we can see the potential for abusers to use the virus to further isolate women. For friends and family to continue to reach out to women would be really important. - Jan Reimer, Executive Director, ACWS

Indigenous Learning Resources

The Alberta Council of Women’s Shelters is committed to reconciliation with Indigenous peoples, and the safety of Indigenous women, their families and their communities. We are committed to ensuring that Indigenous voices are heard, considered, and inform decision-making processes at ACWS.

ACWS will never simply make statements about reconciliation. We will take action.
