Advancing the National Action Plan in Alberta

ACWS has long recognized the need for a national action plan on gender-based violence based on international conventions and has supported efforts through its membership with Women’s Shelters Canada to advance this objective.

Canada needs a National Action Plan (NAP) on violence against women (VAW) to ensure that women in all areas of the country and across the world have access to comparable levels of services and protection. A NAP would also build a shared understanding of the root causes of VAW as well as coordinated and effective efforts across the federal, provincial, territorial, and municipal levels.
